salt curing things like hams goes back centuries

yes indeed salting was how you could transport protein pre refrigeration, its why the Basque ended up in Canada catching and salting and drying cod. Salt and cod are intertwined in the history of Europe.

The history of salt also is the history of humankind.

as to the palatability of salted meat and fish, I am pretty sure it tasted better than starvation
