Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt 1.36kg

When it comes to kosher salt, the crystals make all the difference.

Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt was developed over 100 years ago using a proprietary evaporation process that creates unique hollow, multifaceted salt crystals, fragile enough to crush between your fingers - perfect for controlled seasoning in the home or a food-service setting.

The kosher salt crystal shape influences many of its functional properties, including its adherence to food surfaces - bringing out every dish’s full flavour.

For home cooks and food-service operators who enjoy seasoning control, Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt is the ideal salt.

Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt has a much larger flake size than regular table salt and contains no additives.

Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt is distinct from other kosher salts because of its extraordinary texture and smooth blendability.

Use it for all of your cooking needs, as Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt’s hollow shape dissolves and disperses flavour quickly.

Pure and Natural with no GMOs

To Kosher salt or not to Kosher salt, this is the question.

I'm sure many people other than me have noticed all the trained chefs, particularly Americans, who only use Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt. After some years of my favourite bloggers and chefs extolling the virtues of - specifically - Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt, I thought I should buy some. Thanks to The Barbecue Company for a prompt and well packaged delivery amid difficult covid delivery times.
So it seems Kosher salt has its history in removing blood from meat. This happens to be of no interest to me since I eat whole food plant based (WFPB/vegan). But still, I've used various Australian flakey salts like pink Murray River salt, sea salt from South Australia, Maldon salt, French sea salt, Himalayan pink salt (I don't use this any more, it is unsustainably mined, it can never be replaced once Pakistani producers run out trying to supply we westerners), etc. So I've really liked Australian flakey salts, and there are new smoked varieties, chili infused varieties and so on which make differant effects for different purposes. This is good. The Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt is a nice flakey salt. It certainly doesn't taste better than Australian specialty salts imo. I would say use it to satisfy your curiosity, but if you don't need it to make meat dishes, then relax and ignore the gazillions of (esp. American) chefs and bloggers recommending its use. Australian specialty salts are perfectly fine, easily found in health food stores and good delis, and beautiful on fresh baked bread, vege burgers, baked/roasted vegetables, fermented produce you make at home such as kimchi, sauerkraut, cucumbers, caramelised onions, or, anything at all really. Since I can't find a scientist who has studied the crystal formations of Australian or other salts, then that is going to have to be the great unanswered question for now. It would seem Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt has its crystal structure market share sewn up. Thanks to the Barbecue Company for carrying it so I didn't have to buy it from the US or from Amazon. I have two big boxes to work through so there's lots of experimenting in my future.
Meanwhile, this is supposed to the difference between Diamond Crystal, table salt and Morton's Kosher salt:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1 teaspoon table salt (fine salt) =
1 1/2 teaspoons Morton kosher salt =
2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Have fun finding the best answer. To Kosher salt? or not to Kosher salt...
