Oh, that picture was superrr CUTE. Anyway, here is the one from The Salt Group! :D Yay! Let's do PERFECT IH BOOKLETS!
JEANETTE, if you see this, could you help add in the ORIGINS and USES part? TY! (: LOVELOVE!
Origins of SALT:
Unsurprisingly, evidence shows salt was important as long ago as when mastadons roamed the earth. Therefore making it quite untraceable. (:
But it has been such an important element of life that it has been the subject of many stories, fables and folktales and is frequently referenced in fairy tales.
Salt served as money at various times and places, and it has been the cause of bitter warfare.
“…still evident in the English language as the word "salary" derives from the Latin word salarium that means payment in salt (Latin sal).”
“In West Africa on the southern edge of the Sahara desert, empires were built on the salt trade.”
“In some trading cities in this region (like the famous Timbuktu) salt could be traded ounce-for-ounce for gold.”
•Timbuktu •Niger –By The Tuaregs (Nomads) •Sahara •Ancient Africa –Mali, –Ghana, –Songhai Empires.
FOUND WORLD WIDE :D Sea salt or from Salt Mining in regions with SEAS and ROCKS OF SALT (:
Trade Route: The route began in Northern Africa city known as Sidjilmassa. It passed through the salt-rich village of Taghaza, through the Sahara and finally to the gold region of the Ghana Empire known as Wangara (located near the Bambuk and Bure regions).
Merchants established a second major gold-salt trade route northeast across the Sahara that passed through Tunis, and Cairo, and ended in Egypt's interior.
Uses: Make cream whip more easily and egg whites whip faster and higher. Like WTH!!!? I cant seem to find as pro uses as what THU found the other day ): SO SORRRY!
