Kosher salt

Very often when checking out recipes, I see Kosher salt is recommended. Having worked with and lived around Jews for much of my life, I know a bit about Kosher food and why it is important to Jewish people, but the recipes were not Kosher in the main. Checking it out I find Kosher salt is different to the usual stuff I buy, I am going to give it a try.

Check out this link here for more info.

Kosher salt is an oxymoron. Koshering refers to meat and the way it is slaughtered and prepared. Last time I looked salt is not meat let alone have blood in it.

Another religion trying to be bigger than it is.

And yes I am Jewish,

Well I guess that's told me. But do you agree the salt is different.

Kosher ... Shhmosher what do I know.

Looking at American Recipes they do use Kosher Salt. I use rock salt or table salt I think it's the size of the grains, in fact I'm sure it's the size of the grains. Are there any American Readers who can help out here.

Sorry but I didn't know what this word meant so I looked it up on Wikipedia. An oxymoron is a figure of speech that juxtaposes apparently contradictory elements. Am I any wiser? Not sure, but I use table salt rightly or wrongly.

Don't know who you are but thanks for your comment "but I use table salt rightly or wrongly."

I think it's priceless LOL

All the best Jan

Yes it's, different Eddie, but only the fact it is rock salt not table salt. I actually dislike it when mainly US chefs say kosher salt like it means they are a bit above you. It's all in the delivery.

Yes, the Jewish person again.

LB, yes trying to say as the salt is kosher is like trying to say a banana is an orange, it's contradictory.
