Salt is one of the most important items on your pantry shelf. Salt is an ingredient in cooking. It is important to use it in food preparation – not when the dish is finished. That’s why you taste as you cook. Pepper is a seasoning so you can wait until your dish is finished before adding it. Again taste, taste, taste.
There are all kinds of salts in the shops today. Lovely pink salt from Hawaii, gray salt from France, smoked salt for the bbq. They are pricy. Create your own flavoured salt. They are an asset in your kitchen and make wonderful little gifts.
