Product placement/Himalayan salt

I saw this salt at my local Co-op, and thought I'd give it a try. It is apparently like a million times better for you than good ol' Morton's iodized salt, or even sea salt. There's a lot of info here and here, if you are interested in learning about it. In addition to the benefits, I can tell you it is delicious. I am a big salt girl. I don't feel badly about using salt because I don't eat processed foods which are usually loaded with it. And this stuff really tastes good. I use the one on the right for salting soups or adding to things and the one on the left for salting my food. It is a bit crunchy and sweet, and it looks so pretty! I love this salt.

  2. I think my mom has some of the pink sea salt, but I haven't tried it. I only use salt on my eggs and in my guacamole. Other than that, I don't feel I need it for the extra flavor.

    1. That's amazing! Not on potatoes? Rice?

    2. Nope. I use salted butter, so maybe that's why I don't feel like I want more salt.

  4. Himalayan salt is a wonderful ingredient. I have the same container you have on the right and a similar grinder as the one on the left that I grabbed on a mainland visit to Trader Joe's. I have a bit of a salt "fetish" and like trying and using all different kinds and even flavors of sea salts but find myself often coming back to pink! ;-)

    1. Wow! Thanks for telling me. Have you seen the Himalayan salt candle/light holders? They are pretty amazing looking but I haven't bought one... yet.

  5. I think I'm going to give some of this a try. Did you know there's sugar in 'good old Morton salt'? They call it dextrose, but a rose by any other name . . .

    And I love your large header of your beautiful Lab. We've had two of these wonderful pups over the years.

    1. I did know!! This stuff is so much better! Lucy is our first purebred Labrador. We had two part-Labs before, and we see both of them in her.

  6. Who would have thought salt could have different tastes? I'm more of a salty person too, and you're right, it's like fat, only bad if too much or in processed food.

    1. 'Regular' salt doesn't have much taste of its own, but the Himalayan really does.

  8. I have recently seen this in stores, but was not quite sure whether to try or not. You have convinced me to purchase a bottle the next time I see it :)

  9. I'm a big salt fan too! I use it unapologeticly. I normally use flake salt but this post reminds me that I have a big grinder of Himalayan Pink Salt that I picked up at Costco not to long ago. I need to pull it out and start using it more.

  10. I've heard of Himalayan pink salt but never used it. Now I'm curious! I use sea salt mostly. And I *did* know there was sugar in table salt ... which is why I haven't bought it in years.

    1. According to the article this stuff tops sea salt, too!

  11. We try and keep from too many processed foods too so I do use salt liberally. Not in everything but.....
    I saw from Deb's comment they have it at Trader Joe's so I will go look today. I need to get eggs there anyway 😀

  12. It does look good -- if there are tomatoes in that garden along with the beautiful lettuce, I can imagine the joy of taking a handful out to the garden and dipping a just-picked warm tomato into it. Yummmmm!
