Some of the best natural, seasoned, and smoked sea salts (4-ounce grinder $8.49-$9.99; 6-ounce glass jar $10.49-$12) come from the coast of Maine.
–Yankee Magazine, November/December 2010

Ten years ago, while shopping at a local health-foods store one day, Steve Cook, a third-generation lobsterman from Marshfield, Maine, had an epiphany when he saw sea salt on the counter and realized, “We have an ocean, and everyone knows lobsters cooked in seawater taste better.” So he got into the salt business. Today, his Maine Sea Salt Company pumps about 7,000 gallons of seawater at a time into shallow pools inside 200-foot-long solar-tent greenhouses, where evaporation will eventually leave about 1,500 pounds of salt to be collected. The firm sells 15,000 to 20,000 pounds of salt a year, including natural, seasoned, and even smoked varieties, each building on what Cook touts as the layering of crisp, sweet, and saline tastes.
