I may have reported about Sal de Cocó and its benefits before. Sea salt in Mallorca is called Sal de Cocó when it is being collected from the Parque Nacional del Archipiélago de Cabrera and sold in the pueblo of Ses Salines, a Cocó being the name of a hollow in the rock. As it happens, this natural sea salt is not only washed into small rock pools on Cabrera island but in lots of places here in Mallorca as well, wherever there is a rocky sea-shore and especially in the south-east of the island. You may be lucky to spot one of those rock hollows full of the flakes of the salt of the Mediterranean Sea on one of your meanderings, just like I did the other day. You can gather the salt flakes by hand, bring them back to your home and clean your find of any impurities. If you happen to find lots of salt, you can pack it into small glass containers and give these offerings to some of your friends as small gifts when they next invite you for a nice meal. Beats Flor de Sal d’es Trenc or Llum de Sal as a gift any time, hands down.
If your Spanish is up to it, you can read more about the virtues of Sal de Cocó on this blog.
