Imagine what would french fries taste like without salt? Tasteless… salt is one of the most essential, old and basic food seasoning (spice) all over the world, and we are lucky to have a large supply of salt, as a matter of fact there’s even a city, place in our country where the salt festival is being celebrated. Salt Festival or also known as Asinan Festival is celebrated every February 20 each year at San Lorenzo, Guimaras. This festival aims to shows us how they appreciate, cherish and use salt in their daily lives especially the food they prepare like tuyo and other fish products.
