Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things! Also, no furniture. No guns.

    Minecraft education edition already has this, but to be in vanilla minecraft would be pretty cool


    Salt in education edition

    Salt would be a great addition due to the prevalence in human culture and earth geology today. 

    I do like the idea of giving it a purpose for food.  Adding it to meats could create Bacon, Jerky, Salted fish ...

    A salt block could attract Horses, Donkeys, and Mules.  They would stay in place casually licking the block.

    In bedrock edition snow piles up and up and up over time (after much snowfall it can reach full block height) so it would be good if you could place salt down on things you don't want snow to pile up on such as roads or in front of doorways.

    Deep beneath the surface on the ocean floor, the player can rarely find what looks to be an underwater pond or lake. These pools are filled with a new block called Brine.
    Brine Blocks
    These blocks can be swam through at the rate of lava, but it is highly advised against. Brine is incredibly toxic and will inflict Poison I upon any entity or player that is not wearing an Aqua Affinity helmet. Aquatic creatures do their best to avoid them, but sometimes they will fail. The blocks are harvested with a shovel.
    Salt is acquired by boiling Brine in a furnace. Salt is used to make raw meat edible on the go without the use of cooking. Sometimes it might be better to cook rather than use salt. If you have salt and raw meat or even rotten flesh, you can combine them to create Salted Jerky. Much like this suggestion, salt could possibly be placed as a dust to ward off mobs.
    If a Zombie, Husk or Zombie Pigman happens to descend into the Brine, it will drop Salted Jerky upon death. Drowned drop Salted Jerky in place of rotten flesh.
    Salted Jerky heals 4.5 hunger points (2.5 haunches), has a saturation value of 1.0 and takes 1.5 times longer to eat than other foods beside dried kelp.

    But what would it be used for? Salting food?

    I don't know about the food recipes, but I'd suggest making salt looking something like the picture below and it should generate in small quantities on the beaches.

    I know it doesn't look good, but this is just an idea.

    What if we made it to were food can spoil then it would increase difficulty to the game and salt would stop spoiling from happening by turning food to dry variations of that food
