Alternatively, those of you that use Diamond Crystal or Davids, I'm curious if the salt grains are uniform or is there a variation (that I think it just great) from one crystal to the next. Thanks in advance.
Toast, I use Diamond Crystal. There is some variety in grain size but that's probably due to a variety of factors, including the grinding process and internal activity in the box during transportation, storage and use. I'd bet all makers aim for a uniform grain size to ensure consistency in volume measures. As it is, there is a distinct difference in measure between DC and Morton's. Morton's grain size is somewhere between DC and table salt so you have to know this to do a proper volume measure.
I like the fact that DC salt only has one ingredient. You know what it's going to taste like every time.
