    I’ve been told that unrefined salt is best to use. Where do you get unrefined salt?

    • Hi Bonnie,
      Unrefined salts such as Jurassic salt, Himalayan salt and sel gris have become pretty available even at your regular grocery store. But you can definitely find them at natural (and some) health food stores. Hope this helps!

  • I love salt and I love that you wrote this post! I have about 25 different salts in my cabinet, ranging from the everyday kosher and sea salt to specialty salts (Alaea Red Hawaiian, Himalayan Pink, Cypress Black) to the flavored salts (bamboo, cabernet, truffle) and a number of smoked salts. Mostly though, I reach for fine sea salt, which I have sitting on my counter in a salt well out of habit and laziness. I should really put out some of my other salts to use.

  • I seldom use table salt anymore; I’ve replaced it with a finer grade of sea salt but I’ve run the gamut. I’ve got the smoked salt (rarely used), pink salt, gray salt and Maldon which does seem to end up mostly on cookies or brownies because it’s so pretty. I give some credit to Michael Chiarello for the salt craze; I don’t think that guy did a show when he was on Food Network that didn’t mention gray salt!

  • Thanks for a fabulously informative post! I tend to use sea salt, kosher salt and Himalayan pink salt, as I prefer the subtlety they impart as opposed to table salt. I also love flavored salts and found some great ones at the Vail out door market last year. I know they were made by a couple of women here in Denver and I may just have to hunt them down or drive back up the hill!!!

    • Thanks Jill.

      Now you should try one of the smoked salts. Just for a little variety.

  • What a wonderful, informative post! There is so much to learn (and try) – thanks for laying it out so beautifully!

    • Thanks Belinda, I just hope it makes a little more sense to everyone now. It’s frustrating when something as simple as salt gets so complicated.

      May 24, 2012
  • Himalayan, kosher, maldon flakes and sea salt. My neighbor makes dozens of flavored salts that I’m dying to try.

    May 24, 2012
    • Lucky you! Flavored salts are a lot of fun to play with in the kitchen. They’re right up there with flavored sugars. Maybe I’ll tackle those one day.
