Question about old fashioned chinking

I was just remembering that about 25 years ago when we first got our land one of the old timers told me that they used wood ash and salt to make chinking for log cabins. Does anyone know anything about this? Thank you.

Thank you Victor, this is looking better than I thought it might. I guess I'll have to do some experimenting. Does anyone have any experience with using it as a masonry mortar or parging mixture?
