I've wanted to use a more natural type of sea salt [affiliate link] than the commercial brands that I've found at the store. I asked on the list which kind people liked and Celtic Sea Salt® was recommended. Without even trying it, I took their advice and ordered a twenty-two pound bag from the food coop. Buying it in bulk I paid only $2.45 per pound.
A few nights ago, my son comes out of his room, hands me this little bag of salt and asks if I want to try it. Turns out he brought home this 1/2 pound bag of light grey, coarse ground Celtic Sea Salt several weeks ago, and it is exactly what I ordered from the coop.
So I got to try it out before it arrived from the coop. My verdict?
I am that person that everyone chides for putting too much salt on my food. I learned that people whose adrenals are fatigued crave salt, so that makes a lot of sense for me.
There is just something about this salt that makes it taste delicious. It also contains several trace minerals.
I bought this grinder to go with the salt: Kyocera Ceramic Fine Mill (this is my Amazon affiliate link). The grinder arrives tomorrow. The reviews on Amazon were favorable for the grinder.
OH, and if you don't have a grinder, it is simple to make salt finer by putting several tablespoons on a cutting board and rolling over it firmly with a rolling pin. The salt crunches into a less coarse grind and is perfect for seasoning individual portions. I hear that people keep a little bowl with salt in it beside the stove to season while cooking which you could use either coarse or once you've crushed it.
Here is a site that tells about the different kinds of salt. And isn't this salt cellar adorable?
