Salt Crystals are an item exclusive to The Gorge event in Don't Starve Together. In order to receive Salt Crystals, one must install a Salt Rack at a Salt Pond and wait two minutes until it is ready to be harvested. Once the time is up, Salt Crystals will appear out of the pond and can then be harvested, resulting in 1 Salt Crystal which can be ground up, granting the player 3 Salt. Salt is very useful as it can be used to extend the freshness of cooked meals while also increasing the value of the food item that is given to The Gnaw. In addition, 3 Salt can be traded with the Swamp Pig Elder for a Key.
