pink rock salt

pink salt

Rev. Dr. Wu Yi knows well that in my cooking, pepper and salt are the two main ingredients. And everything tastes a lot better once it is served on square plates. I recently acquired some pink rock salt.

So there is the story:
I never knew there was pink salt until late last year. In a restaurant in Oxford Street, I once asked Laurent what was that pink stuff.
He replied ‘salt’.
I asked back that it was pink.
He asked me back if I have seen pink salt?
Of course, I hadn't.

Three weeks ago, I bought a bag of pink rock salt from local green grocer. $1.99 for 100 grams. But damn, I needed a grinder for it as well. Then two weeks ago, I got a salt grinder from Myer while doing my window shopping. Myer had 30% off on kitchen products, and I was certainly not going to let go the great opportunity of getting a salt grinder. (I already have a pepper grinder.)

Rock salt is a lot stronger than regular (sea) salt in terms of strength. And the pink rock salt? It simply looks interesting.

(To Don: I am poor.)

from iTunes Store:
I saw some Sea Rock Salt today, thought that was a conflict in terms.This salt needed a grinder too but was only 98c for 1Kg.Also saw regular Rock Salt for $1-39 Kg.
None of the above were "pink".

I didn't know there was a such thing as pink salt. When we buy rock salt, it's usually to de-ice the sidewalk during the wintertime, not for eating. I'm guessing what we use for eating is regular table salt.

"Regular table salt", can be produced from sea water, or rock salt as found in nature away from the sea.
Processing makes the difference, and the addition of a small amount of iodine, in some cases.
Salt in all its forms, is the oldest element used by man on the planet I would imagine.

I as well as my friends haepenpd to be reviewing the best advice located on your website while the sudden got a terrible suspicion I had not thanked the blog owner for those secrets. Those boys are already totally stimulated to read them and have now very much been using them. Many thanks for turning out to be considerably thoughtful and for deciding on such outstanding ideas millions of individuals are really desperate to learn about. My very own sincere regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.
