    Taste Of The Month - SALT

    Salt has played a major part in history - Salt created and destroyed empires over the centuries and was traded all over the world and there was even a salt tax.

    Sea Salt being harvested

    Times have changed and these days salt is readily available at any store, we are all aware that too much salt is not good for you and many of us have cut down the amount used in cooking. These days you can also get a low salt which is great to use as a table salt.

    Salting meat and fish was the only way that food like this could be preserved and is still used to this day.

    There so many types of salts to pick from these days from Iodised salt, rock salt, Kosher salt and natural salt, which tends to look more grey and flavoured salts as well.

    There are many great ideas and recipes here - Hope that you enjoy them



    Copycat Lawry's Seasoned Salt
    Seasoned Un-Salt
    Fat Rice

    You can even make your own sea salt
    Sea Salt
    Gourmet Rosemary Sea Salt Blend
    Seasoned Salt Mix
    Fool's Salt - Sel Fou - French Style Seasoning Salt
    Savory Italian Seasoning Salt

    You might want a hint of flavour or very strong flavour salt. Here is a guideline however:
    If you use herbs (fresh or dried), mix 2 tbsp herbs to 1 cup salt. For chilli, smoked paprika, lavender etc, use 1 tbsp of flavouring per cup of salt.
    However, you can safely use a quarter cup of seasoning to every 3/4 cup of salt.

    Buy a selection of herbs, such as basil, thyme/lemon thyme, oregano, sage (be careful with rosemary. You can add a little, but it can be very overpowering). Clean the herbs and pat them dry. If you are using rock salt, put the herbs in a food processor, then add the salt and pulse to break the salt into smaller bits.

    Transfer mixture to a baking tray. You can either dry the herb/salt mixture in the oven (100C for an hour, stirring occasionally) or you can air dry it. The salt will suck the moisture out of the herbs in no time. If you are using Maldon salt, mix the chopped herbs with the salt, but don't put the salt in the food processor.
    When dried, transfer to a jar with a lid.



    Salted Grilled Fish
    Baked Bacalhau / Salted Cod
    Salt Cod Fish Balls

    Talking salt we just Can not forget

    Thanks Sage!

    I use Himalayan Pink Salt for the table and most cooking.

    Himalayan Pink Salt is pure, hand-mined salt found naturally; deep within the Himalayan Mountains. Crystallized more than 200 million years ago, ancient sea beds were covered by volcanic lava, protecting the salt from modern-day pollution, and lending to the belief that Himalayan Pink salt is the purest salt to be found on earth. Eating this salt is a lot like going back in time and consuming minerals from pre-industrial Earth. It also contains 84 minerals and trace minerals, including iodine.
