Eating out restrictions over the past 11 months has led to a rise of home cooking with many consumers being more experimental then ever in the kitchen. Cornish Sea Salt Company Managing Director Philip Tanswell said: “The past few years have seen a significant rise in the demand for sea salt in the UK, quadrupling output from our sea salt house in Cornwall as a result. “Our salts are naturally lower in sodium and contain over 60 healthy minerals.
