Salt pigs seem to be popular in damp places. I've seen them all over
England and in Brittany. I use kosher salt in mine at the beach
because I've been told that is is less anhydrous and absorbs less
water from the air. All I know is that is works; the salt does not
turn into a rock. Just don't know why.
