|Red Hawaiian Sea Salt|
Throw out that old box of iodized salt you may have grown up on. Sea salt is a better option with a variety of flavor, color and texture. There's less processing involved with sea salt which is produced from the evaporation of seawater. The more heavily processed table salt is iodized and mined from underground salt deposits.
I find you need less when using sea salt, and of course anything with less processing is healthier in the long run.
There are many varieties of sea salt from Smoked, Truffle, Vanilla, Moist Grey found in the South of France to name a few. Hawaiian Black Lava Salt sounds perfect for a meat rub for the carnivorous.
I like the presentation as well as the crackling sound the sea salt makes coming out of the grinder like fresh black pepper.
You can find varieties of sea salt at most commercial grocery stores, Trader Joe's and even the grocery section of your local Target store.
