Salt….Pure And Simple

           

I love salt and with all of the different types of salts that I use, I realized how much I really do love it. The fact that each salt is so different in smell, taste, and texture is amazing and aw inspiring.  No two people taste salt the same way.  I started to really think about salt and the part that it plays in our everyday cooking and eating.  I eat with a conscious effort to know where and how my food is harvested and prepared, so why wouldn’t that apply to the salt that I use and put into my body. Pure and simple, salt is necessary for the human body. Sea Salt is naturally harvested with all of its mineral content intact.  Knowing that fact, with all of the different sea salts available to us today, why would anyone put processed, refined to the point of no nutritional value salt on their table or in their cooking. There are all purpose salts for everyday, from cooking to baking, like Pink Himalayan and Sea Salt, to finishing salts, that are just used to round out all of the flavors of a dish, like Fleur de Sel and Maldon. Salts abound from Smoked, to Sicilian, to Celtic Grey, and even to Hawaiian.  Salts are as bountiful as the seas and mountains from which they come.
