Salt, Kosher

Black Pepper-Free

Kosher salt was a term that was created by kosher butchers referring to the size of the salt crystal rather than the fact of the salt actually being kosher. Kosher salt itself is not kosher, meaning it doesn't conform to Jewish food laws, but instead is used to make meats kosher. This salt is not really a kosher product unless it bears the kosher symbol.

“Salt is the policeman of taste: it keeps the various flavors of a dish in order and restrains the stronger from tyrannizing over the weaker.” - Margaret Visser, 20th century author

Kosher salt has a bigger flake than regular table salt, a crisp, clean flavor and is very popular for marinades, pickling and brining. Its larger surface area helps it to absorb more moisture than most salts, making it perfect for curing meats.  This package holds 3 pounds.

"I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome website. A friend sent me your website and I was like a kid in a candy store seeing your wide variety of spices, salts, herbs, etc. Being someone that's not extremely well versed in what I'd consider 'exotic' ingredients, it was an absolute pleasure to see the products' history, uses, taste and general information. Just wanted to voice my appreciation. Thanks so much!"
