The salt ponds of Ragged Island, in the southern Bahamas. My grandfather was born on this tiny island of only 9 square miles. The island used to boast a thriving salt industry but today it is in decline. The government owns most of the ponds but some are still family owned (my family has one). Salt production provides a means of making a living for the 80 inhabitants of the island. I think the sea salt from Ragged Island is the best in the world (and I am not being biased), giving delicious flavour to foods and providing health benefits. The waters around the island are also some of the best for fishing, providing an additional source of income.
