Salt made by reducing sea water until the natural salts are left. This can either be done by boiling the water or allowing it evaporate naturally in the sun. Sea salt typically has a large crystal and is often left a bit moist making it slightly sticky.
Real Salt is an all-natural, kosher-certified sea salt extracted from deep within the earth, crushed, screened, and packaged. Real Salt's unique flecks of color are the result of more than 50 natural trace minerals essential to human health.
Selecting and Buying
Historically called bay salt or solar salt, its mineral content gives it a different taste from table salt, which is pure sodium chloride, usually refined from mined rock salt (halite) or from sea salt. Generally more expensive than table salt, it is commonly used in gourmet cooking and specialty potato chips, particularly the kettle cooked variety.
Preparation and Use
Sea salt is often used for food dishes where the flavor of the salt is really meant to stand out, such as with French fries, roasted sweet potatoes or some egg dishes
Conserving and Storing
Store in Sea Salt Shakers, Mason Jar, or Tupperware.
