The Rock Stars of Salt

The Rock Stars of Salt - Food & Drink -

Salt’s journey to the grinder on your table has a long and storied history behind it that goes far beyond the trip home from the grocer, its ability to preserve food in many ways making it the foundation of all civilizations.
Consider that the Chinese harvested the mineral as early as 6000 BC.

I can tell you this. I have several different salts that I use from time to time. Depending what I need it for, I use the different ones to handle various recipes.

For example, I prefer to cook with Kosher salt. It is easiest to use when you need pinch of salt. Control is easier with the larger grains.

I also use sea salt. It does not have that processed taste to it. In fact, I use it when I want to really bring out some wonderful flavors out of a piece of meat.
