Sea Salt for 35 cents a pound

I bought a 2lb bag of sea salt for .69 last week at the Stop and Shop. It was in the Portugese foods section and was oddly labeled.

Haven't tried it yet. It looked like sea salt but I'm suspicious.

I've got probably 30 lbs of salt that I used to mix when I had sal****er tanks/aquariums.
I wonder if it's the same stuff.....

Oh you have got to be kidding me
You can't type NaCl+H2O?

That was too simple of a solution, GB. I always do things the hard way

I wouldn't be suspicious, I'd be jealous and I am

Jennyema, lucky you. You not only got a salt deal, but you have a Portugese section. I have never cooked P., but love the food. We used to go to the Portugese section (so clean and safe) of one of the worst cities in the US - Newark, NJ
and pig out. They'd have TVs on, watching football (soccer)
with the moderator yelling, $(^%)+%%@!< ,#&$(%) ,
GOAL!!!!!!!, in Portugese. It was so funny. Free entertainment with spectacular... and CHEAP eats.
