Types of Salt
Salt (sodium chloride) is a crystalline mineral that enhances the flavor and aroma of foods. Producers mine it from thick underground deposits or evaporate seawater and extract the crystals. Cooks most often use table salt, sea salt, and kosher salt. With a little research you’ll find many other interesting salt varieties to choose from, as well.
