As November turns into December, Townsend & Sons' attention turns to...Salt! Many modern folk get more than they need, but imagine not having any to preserve foods in pre-refrigeration Colonial America. Back then (1777) Britain's war to pacify the colonies made life without salt a trial, since salt making was one of the activities prohibited by imperial decree. (No textile mills, gun making, etc.) Sea salt, anyone?
