If you are a human and eat food, chances are your salt was extracted by the yellow machine here. These are the Morton Salt ponds near Salt Lake City, Utah. They pour water from the lake in giant shallow ponds, two to three inches deep. They wait for it to evaporate, then a machine scrapes the surface creating a perfectly leveled marble-like texture. The result of this process is the pure salty white glory waiting at your tabletop.
