    Briquetage is actually not a food as the question was categorized.  it is a coarse ceramic material used to make pots for harvesting salt.  The containers made of briquetage would hold salt water until the ocean water evaporated and only salt remained.  This was one of the earliest means of salt production and was used from the second millennium B.C until medieval times in northern Europe.
