I wonder why it's bad to scorch the salt by boiling the water and also why it's bad to have the oven on 'too hot'

You could go with a no fuel, no energy consumption if you are willing to wait. Make a solar still which is useful in reverse for creating fresh water from salt water in emergencies. Line a pan with a clean black garbage bag. Pour in clean filtered salt water. Tent clear plastic over the top making it wider than the pan. You want the condensation to drip outside of the pan so make sure it can run down the sides and out. Set in the sun and let the water evaporate. The water will "cook" out, condense on the clear plastic and drip down the sides out of the pan. No burning, no fuel cost, eco-friendly; just takes time and makes small batches. Keep the setup off the ground so critters don't get in.
I think the main difference between sea salt and refined table salt is the amount of seagull poop still in it.
Very cool. thanks for sharing! I do a lot of dry curing and was looking up some recipes using sea salt and was wondering how the process was done thinking it might be simple and there you have it! It is actually a great thing to know. thanks
The instructions were great thank you so much! You rock! :)
Salt can't be organic because it is not made by any thing living but is the result of chlorine and sodium. This means that salt can never be organic because it is just not possible. Good insructable though :)
Try using wider pots - they have more surface area which will aid evaporation. It won't be an earth shattering improvement but may shave a few minutes off your boil time.
