Coarse Sea Salt tastes and acts like Rock Salt and is a larger, flatter grain. All of the world's salt deposits are of marine origin. Salt mines are simply locations where water once flowed. Sea Salt is obtained either by wind evaporation, naturally by the sun, or artificially from water evaporation pans. Sea Salt contains less sodium and more trace elements than salt mined from the earth. It also has less iodine, and, therefore, is recommended for people who have problems with acne. Salt has been an important seasoning for many centuries and fulfills three major functions in cooking; it seasons and preserves food in addition to providing nutrients necessary for the body's fluid balance. Salt has been taxed by governments, trading in commerce, offered to the gods and given as part of a salary.
Coarse Sea Salt is ideal used on the rim of mixed drinks. Use in recipes where salt is highlighted in appearance. Coarse Sea Salt can be substituted for regular salt in almost any dish to give you a gourmet taste and appearance. Use less sea salt than you would regular or Kosher salt.
