I have always had a thing for salt. When I was really young I used to use way too much of it, enough that it killed much of the flavor of my food. I didn’t understand back then that many of the salts found in your traditional grocery store may be as much chemical as it is salt, maybe even more. Tht’s because refined salts are stripped of natural minerals found in the sea, with potentially unhealthy anti-clumping additives being added. I have scaled way back on my excessive salt use since then. I have also learned about the benefits of real salts such as those from Hamptons Salt Company.
