German to English translations [PRO]
Art/Literary / 1844 book
German term or phrase: Kuechensalzefflorescenzen
Same book from 1844!

There is also still the most beautiful marshy soil between Bagdad and Zobeir, which, though covered with Kuechensalzefflorescenzen, one can also collect flowing rain-water in pools.

I believe this is the correct spelling - reading Fraktur (on a bad scan) is hard work

agree  Beth Kantus: don't know if this is what is meant, but normal "Küchensalz" in US English is table salt
