I can't imagine the Chicago board of Rabbis allowing kosher salt to be pulled from shelves without one heck of a fight. And I can't imagine aunt Mazie going to sign the drug log at the pharmacy counter to get her arm and hammer for her muffins and to keep the fridge fresh!

But you know back in 1890, cocaine was legal and bleach was sold behind the pharmacist's counter.

Yeah, that's what I just said. He or she wll stand a much more better shot lookng in the some of the supermarkets.

That is the easiest place to find it!

My husband, who does the shopping, says our Walmart carries Kosher salt.

I use Kosher Salt all the time, I prefer it to table salt. I will put a few extra boxes in the pantry, just in case. Next we'll be getting carded to purchase feminine protection...

It's also one of the ingredients for dry rub.

Yeesh... shopping at Walmart for groceries? No offence, but don't they have normal grocery stores where you live? I know it's cheap, but do you really want to put Walmart quality food into your body?

Sorry, I just have a prejudice against Walmart. I might buy toilet paper and some other cheap junk there, but I can't imagine buying food from them... Surely you have discount grocery chains like Price Chopper or No Frills?

Personally, I use Canning and Pickling salt. Same thing as Kosher (pure salt, no additives), just a smaller grain.
Actually the canning/pickling salt has the least amount of aditives, so it is even cleaner than kosher one.

My box of kosher salt lists one ingredient - Salt. I don't think any other kind of salt can have fewer additives than that. Canning/pickling salt is a finer grind than kosher salt so it dissolves more easily. Other than that, it's the same salt.
