I have never been a big salt user. Most of the time I forget to salt what I am cooking. And I don't even notice it when I am eating it. But I do know I prefer sea salt to table salt.

I finally tossed out my box of hard as a rock table salt. Two years old.

himalayan pink salt is what i sprinkle on most of my foods these days. these beautiful pink colored salt crystals are a form of sea, not mountain, salt.--that would be just too confusing, wouldn't it.

whether roughly ground or fine, this salt brings alive any and every food that it touches. it is said to be the purest of all salts available to us, and is rich in many minerals and iron, harvested from ancient sea beds.

i love the natural and pure taste of my himalayan salt as a table seasoning, and for all manner of cooking and grilling. in flavor, these lovely crystal seem only remotely, very distantly related to ordinary table salt, which i don't ever use any more. i carry my salt grinder with me where i go, i'm so spoiled.... :)

I'm probably as much a salt fiend as I am a vinegar fiend I bought two of these, one to keep at work and one for home: Dave’s 6 Gourmet Salts Collection.

They definitely have distinctive flavors; the different crystal sizes also affect the way they taste, just like different textures of foods.

ain't it grand, gotgarlic, when one salt (or garlic or vinegar) fiend meets another fiend! i like your dave's gourmet salt collection--it's all in one container. mine is a set of four, but hey, the salts are simply amazing, aren't they? :)

They are indeed. I also save the salt from bags of pretzels to sprinkle on food. One of my former coworkers thought that was really strange It's so nice and crunchy!

ATK did a test of measuring the amount of salt that fell off of pretzels. It seemed Utz was the winner for the least amount of salt. Of course that is the brand I always buy. So I measured the amount of salt from a box of pretzel logs. Less than 1/4 tsp. When I can't find Wise potato chips, I buy Utz chips. Again, the salt stays on the chips. And they aren't as salty tasting after a while like other chips.

All salt is pretty much equally salty.

Many people cannot distinguish the differences between types of salt.

I have a bunch of different kinds of sea salt and can detect the subtle mineral and vegetative flavors. But they ARE subtle.
