Earlier this year, one of the books that I completely devoured was The Kitchen Counter Cooking School by Kat Flinn. I’ve told you about it before. It’s on the top of my “must-reads” list. If you haven’t read it already, add it to your wish-list this year.

Flinn recounts her experience in teaching folks how to become more at home in their kitchens, including teaching her proteges all about cooking techniques, knives, food sourcing, and salt.

Yes, salt!

She takes her pupils through a salt tasting and show them the different nuances that are in different salts. Not every little white shaker bottle is created equal.

After reading the book, my friend Carrie and I chatted online about it here and there. She said that one of her take-aways from the book was to invest in different kinds of salt. I was fascinated.

Salt was on my radar, so when the Real Salt company approached me to try their products, I jumped at the chance.

What the Deal with Real Salt?

My kids and I had discussed the different flavors and aspects of salt, so they, too were eager to see if this salt would taste different. And it does! And we like it a lot. We felt that the food I seasoned with had more flavor and just plain tasted better.

In case you’re wondering what is different about Real Salt, here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Real Salt means – well, real, authentic salt. A quick glance at the ingredients label on most salts might surprise you! Many salts contain anti-caking agents and even dextrose (sugar). Others have been heat processed and stripped of their natural trace minerals. Real Salt brand, on the other hand, is unrefined and full of natural minerals and flavor – the way salt was meant to be savored.

Real Salt’s unique coloring comes from more than 60 trace minerals, which also lend an amazing flavor that has helped Real Salt become the best-selling brand of sea salt in health food stores. Real Salt is best tasting, healthiest sea salt you can find.

Curious to know more? Check out the Real Salt blog. There is a lot of really interesting information there, including a discussion about how the nuclear testing in Nevada impacts the natural resources in the west, including the salt mines.

This week three Good Cheap Eaters will each win a Real Salt Seasoning Gift Pack.

  1. We love Real Salt! Can’t wait to try their other flavors.

    Good luck to everyone!

  2. We tried RealSalt several months ago and that’s all we use now unless I need large amounts for something, since I am on a very tight budget. It is worth a little extra – it really does taste better and for sure it is so much healthier! I so enjoyed it on watermelon and cantalope all summer and on popcorn. I haven’t seen the seasonings. I’ll have to look for those!

  3. It really is surprising how much difference there is in the taste – the “table salt” I grew up with now tastes very harsh and metallic to me.

  4. I only use sea salt but I don’t think I’ve tried this brand. I actually need to get some more, so I’ll look when I’m at the store to see if they offer it here. Do you use this in cooking and baking or just for a ‘finishing touch’ salt sprinkled on the top for flavor? I generally use the cheaper white sea salt in stuff and use a gray Mediterranean sea salt on top when it will be readily tasted, such as on vegetables.

    We watched a documentary sort of thing a few years ago (science or history channel, probably) that was about the different ways it is mined and processed from various areas of the world. We had no idea it came in so many different colors! There was a restaurant somewhere that had something like 200 different types of salt. It was fascinating.

  5. That book has more highlights and post-it notes than any cookbook I own. I absolutely loved it and learned so much!

  6. Hi. I just wanted to say that I love real salt and it’s cool that you’re doing this give-away with them. I didn’t know that they had flavored salts. Something new and fun – thanks for letting us know. The part I like best about Real Salt is the minerals that are kept in. It helps me to be more ok with my salt addiction (which I always try and fight).

    Thanks again.

    And I bought your book and am looking forward to doing a meal exchange, after I understand how to keep things even dollar wise, with the moms group I joined. How cool that you wrote, and published a book!
