Grinder for sea salt

Anyone use a grinder for sea salt ? Regular grinder does not work for wet salt. Sometimes I want a finer grain sea salt.

Just curious, I have never heard of wet salt. All the salt I have ever used is dried. BB&B has a good variety of salt and pepper grinders here in Richmond. I have a salt grinder which grinds fine.

Salt, Sel Marin de Guerande French Grey Sea Salt

some sea salts are wet. I guess I could try drying it as mentioned on the site.

I would like to use what I have, 3 different kinds of sea salt before buying more. Perhaps next time I need more I will get the fine sea salt, thanks for the reminder.

there is a salt mill for wet salt but it is pricey.

I'm here to learn. Now I know about wet sea salt. If I wanted this ground fine, I would get out the Mortar and Pestle and pound it.

You could also throw it into the food processor.

Look for a grinder with a ceramic grinding mechanism so it does not rust. This is not an issue with pepper, but it is with salt.

A mortar and pestle will work fine for wet or dry sea salt.
