Kosher salt is regular salt that is so named for its use in the preparation of meat according to the requirements of Jewish dietary guidelines. It contains fewer additives, has a saltier, cleaner, and less chemically taste than ordinary table salt. It generally comes in flakes rather than granules. The flakes dissolve easily, and due to the shape of the granules, there is simply less salt in a pinch of kosher salt than in a pinch of table salt. Kosher salt is most often used on top of pretzels and on the rims of margarita glasses. Kosher salt is a must for Brazilian barbecue or churrasco. It is important to note that all Kosher salt is not necessarily sea salt. Kosher salt comes in fine and coarse grain. A great all-purpose salt for cooking and baking.
