Salt flakes

TinaMarie Dec 6, 2012 04:07 PM

I have found a few recipes that call for salt flakes but it is hard to come by in my area. I was wondering if I could make my own from brine to obtain the proper texture. Has anyone done this?

    I have not but I have ordered Maldon flakes from Amazon. They are very reliable and the price is great. Now my Whole Foods has it more reliably though I think it is cheaper on Amazon!

      It would be a WHOLE lot easier to just order Maldon: http://www.amazon.com/Maldon-Sea-Salt...

        Thirding Maldon, the stuff is great and easy to get.

          Fourthing Maldon. Love the smoked flakes, too.
