Syracuse Salt Company with Dave Iannicello

Syracuse Salt Company with Dave Iannicello

August 22, 2019

Syracuse, New York was once known worldwide for salt. Now, it doesn't make sense that a city in the middle of New York state would be known for salt but there is a huge brine aquifer hundreds of feet under central New York. The natural springs were first utilized for salt production in 1788 with the help of the Onondaga People in building the first salt works. 

Production of salt ended around the early 1900s but for the first time in 100 years Dave Iannicello and his daughter Libby are making salt from the brine. Listen as Dave tells us about Syracuse Salt Company and the process of making salt from brine.
