This is picture of the little Ladybug herself standing with Bob La Mar, of Mendocino Sea Salt fame! Bob and his wife,Lora collect pure ocean water off the Mendocino Coast from aboard their boat, the Fair Chase. All of their products begin with the clear, mineral rich waters of the Mendocino Coastline. The natural forming undersea canyons have a strong upwelling that forces the deepest and purest water closer to the surface, where it’s collected. To have Bob describe to you the process of making this fabulous sea salt is a treat all by itself, he is such a captivating story teller! Their salt is truly one of a kind so make sure you keep your eye open for their booth at the Marin Civic Center farmers market or look for them online at www.mendoseasoning.com. And you can always find their amazing salt on top of my wonderful Chocolate Chip cookies. The best cookies you’ve ever eaten topped with the best salt money can buy!
