Why I Like Kosher Salt
I nearly always cook with kosher salt (coarse salt) for its ease and its pure
mild flavor. It’s coarser in texture than standard table salt, but the crystals are actually fine flecks that cling to food and dissolve quickly. The large irregular flakes also make it easier to sprinkle evenly and discriminately, especially when seasoning food to taste with a pinch of the fingers. If you are substituting table salt for kosher
salt in a recipe, begin with half the amount listed.
