Got a new salt grinder and will soon need to refill it. Any suggestions as to what type of salt to use? There are so many salts available that it has become very confusing.
Salt grinder. Why?
The pink Himalayan salt is very, very good. Huge crystals.
If you happen to have a 99 Cent store near you, they have Italian Course Sea Salt that is perfect.
For everyday use i would buy a coarse sea salt-there are a ton of varieties on the market, I like a french grey sea salt.
Wouldn't coarse kosher salt work?
I don't think so- all the kosher salt i've bought is flakes
Big flakes at that, good for cooking but careful for table use as they're big and well, salty. But definitely not for grinder.
This is my favorite:
The voice of bitter experience here - you need rock salt, not salt flakes, which just gum up the grinder. I use Tidman's Rock Salt.
