A quick video tutorial from Steve & Lisa McBride on how to make your own sea salt here in Newfoundland and Labrador. It's way easier than you'd think. Enjoy!
Maple syrup conjures up images of towering arboretums in places like Quebec or Vermont, but it’s a little known secret that the rugged and hardy maple trees of Newfoundland make darn fine maple syrup.

Is it a garage? Is it a hill for sliding? Is it a passageway to The Secret World of Og? No, silly! What you see here is a root cellar, complete with a front entryway! Tucked underneath the cover of ground, Leonard Vassallo has converted an old oil tank into a cellar that’s providing him with space to store produce from his garden, year round. We think it’s pretty amazing. Maybe you will too!
