Using Sea Salt

Cooking with saltThe most familiar use of salt undoubtedly is in the kitchen and on the dining table. Salt accents the flavour of meat, brings out individuality of vegetables, puts “oomph” into bland starches, deepens the flavour of delicate desserts and develops flavour of melons and certain other fruits. No other seasoning has yet been found that can satisfactorily take the place of salt.
