Isn’t it funny how food goes through such turmoil and fads? 5 years ago non fat non sugar everything was the much healthier option, but now we know that’s just not true.
I feel the same shift has happened with salt. For so long people have been concerned about the amount of salt intake in their diet. True, it’s important not to OD on the delicious crystals, but it isn’t as taboo as it once was, and I think all the boutique, hand-harvested salt companies cropping up can take a lot of the credit for this attitude change toward the seasoning.
I for one am a huge salt fan, and these small, hand harvested salt companies do an incredible job of bringing more than your ordinary salt. We’re talking smoked salts, truffle salts, chunky salts, flaky salts, etc etc. Just a pinch of real salt (non of that table salt crap) goes a long way, and that’s how these vices should be enjoyed – the best ingredients in moderate amounts.
So bring on the salt!
