With as much I love salt, you’d never know that for the first 15 years of marriage I didn’t use it at all. We thought it was bad for you. Not that I douse everything with it, but I do use it. All the time. In fact, I occasionally get a gift of salt.
Here’s how I like to use it:
When it rains it pours. I guess salt used to get stuck. I do remember bits of rice at the diner’s salt shaker growing up. I still use regular salt for baking. I don’t take the time to convert to kosher salt.
I like this for every kind of seasoning. Sprinkling over entrees, meat before grilling, soups, salads while they are cooking. I like that you can feel and see how much you are using
Celtic grey salt
Finishing. This is my favorite. I use it to finish foods, every kind. I also like it in salads, some desserts. I like the crunch in mouth.
This salt is “saltier” than most. I like this especially in pasta water. You don’t have to use as much and it makes an impact. I also like it in soup.
Trader Joes Pink Hawaiian salt
I like this in the same way as celtic salt but if you want a fine finish. Also great on popcorn.
Soft pretzels. (Or just out of your hand.)
There are so many to try. Which salts do you love and how do you use them?
