What bout delivery fee with Amazon
Do you even Prime?
Who pays for delivery with amazon??
Buy extra and return always work for me,
Can you really taste the difference?
Probs not but i do love sprinkling it onto things like salt bae
he is using kosher salt
kosher salt is flakes, compared the 99c stuff at the supermarket, don't see much kosher salt at the supermarkets so maldon is close if you want flakes, though very expensive per kg.
they r flakier than normal table salt
it's fun when season food at the end, eg fries..
u can see them n more fun when u hit them every now n then as oppose to just tasting the same every mouth
not overly salty tho.. so they r good in that sense.
if u use them during the cooking process then, there is no diff
yes, it actually enhances flavours. Makes roasts amazing! Don't get salt that has anti-caking agents. Get the real stuff - Maldon.
Wack a quarter teaspoon of this stuff in your mouth and then do the same with table salt or even pink rock salt. Definitely a different taste, nowhere near as harsh. Think of it like a cheap vs good Vodka or something. Noticeable difference if having it straight, subtle difference when mixed with other flavours.
It's great on cuts of meat, fish skin etc. It will dissolve with the moisture and due to the pyramid shape of the flake, spreads out as it does so.
I don't use it in sauces etc where it will dissolve as it's not as strong, so you use a lot more of it. Ground rock salt is my preference there.
inheritance sorted OP?
Is this what the Americans call "kosher salt"? (should be "koshering salt, used to make something kosher.)
Normal Coles price is $4.50. What is special about Maldon? Seas ain't seas?
(and still 20 x the price of cooking salt)
just comes down to the size of the individual salt grain/crystal - so main difference is textural. kosher salt is a slightly smaller flake.
but you're right - it's all salt in the end
This is 15 mins worth watching. I think most of his vids are excellent
Kosher salt doesn't make things kosher, it's used in the koshering process, just it's flakes (texture) so easier if you want to salt things and extract blood, just also a good texture for use on other things.
This is the correct answer
I'm not a chef, but i like using coarse flaky salt on steaks, and bigger cuts of meat when using a smoker.
The main US brand is Morton, not as good as Maldon.
Not sure it's worth the price, but if you did pay that amount, you'd also trick your brain into thinking it's better so it ends up tasting better. Think of the matrix or something, it's all electrical signals.
koshering salt in 20kg bags is cheapppp, problem is what to do with that much salt in a home setting and high blood pressure.
Just let some blood out, ease the pressure
This stuff's crack I hope Operation Ironside aren't on to me
