I just grind up kosher salt to a flour like salt, in the blender.

All salt is Kosher.

So black salt is kosher? And what you are saying means that black salt, pink salt, or any of those other colors of salt could be used in preparation of a truly kosher meat or poultry product?

pepperhead, my understanding is that 'kosher' rules refer to the way meat and animal products, such as dairy are prepared. Salt is a mineral, not an animal nor product thereof.

It's not just how they're prepared =it's what they are. Some animal products, such as pork and shellfish, are not kosher (fit to eat) under any circumstances. Kosher salt is called that because it's used to help remove blood from the slaughtered animals and eating blood is not kosher.

You mean to tell me that if I don't salt mine, they won't be??

SOW, it's almost time to plant cucumber seeds, and I have a new (to me) pickling variety.

Love dills! wish I could make them. Used to try but, although edible, store bought was better. Could never figure out whether or not they needed to be water processed.

Baby dills, full sized, sandwich slices! Low salt and garlicy. YUM Breakfast, lunch or dinner plus any hour between.

My preferred low-salt ones at the moment are Bick's.


ps, you're welcome Charlie - semantics, go figure
