During this Experience we will collect wild Hawaiian salt along the coast of Maui, clean it, and package it for you to take home. We will meet at a nearby cafe to get acquainted and carpool to the place where we will collect salt that day. Weather conditions are hugely important : we are looking for the right combination of seawater, sun, and wind. When we get to our destination, we will begin to walk along the coastline looking for areas where the waves have washed up on the lava or rocks, and that's when we will start to gather our salt. We will gather the salt in a traditional Hawaiian collection method, using great care not to touch or pollute it. Next, we mark the exact location of each place where we gathered salt, using the name of the traditional Hawaiian Ahu'pua'a (district) and place name. Time permitting, we can add flavor such as smoke, pepper, etc. Then we will label it for you to take home! When we have gathered our salt, we will pause for some refreshments like juicy fresh mango and payola, and a swim in the ocean. After all, we ARE on Maui :) Please feel free to ask any questions. I look forward to sharing my favorite pastime with you!
Il tuo host
Aloha, I'm Sarah! I grew up on the wild south coast of Maui in the 1970s. My family and our "ohana" (friends) spent hours, days even camped out along the beaches. We fished, gathered limu (seaweed) and opihi (shellfish), cooked, ate, and played music. This is when I learned to find and collect salt, which was essential to life in ancient Hawaii. It was used to season and preserve food, for religious and ceremonial purposes, and as medicine. I attended the University of Hawaii and worked for the Hawaii Dept. of Land & Natural Resources on Maui.

Dove ti troverai
Hawaiian sea salt is collected from rocky shoreline pools, where it occurs as a result of natural solar evaporation. We will be collecting salt along the coastline in South Maui beyond the town of Kihei and La Perouse Bay. The exact location will depend on weather conditions that day. That's part of the fun of salt collecting!
