Salty

I forgot how delicious and wonderful large salt crystals can be. I've been grinding my sea salt in my new salt grinder from my mom. Today, however, when the organic produce arrived and I made my delicious salad, I dressed it with EVOO and salt. Sea salt. From the little jar with the tiny wooden spoon inside. It was amazing!

I love how the crystals melted on my tongue and filled my mouth with flavor. I love how the salt crystals made a small bubble in the olive oil on the plate or as they floated on top of the lettuce. They were marvelous.

How, oh, how could I be grinding up all my salt and not appreciating this chunky goodness? Ground salt is so out. In this household, we are now returning to the world of large chunky sea salt.

I wonder if the salt would taste as excellent on the new batch of blueberries as it tasted on the new tomatoes?

I feel remiss as your FMIL that I did not introduce you to the wonders of chunky sea salt. You didn't notice my salt jar with the little wooden spoon in the kitchen?
Salt is wonderful thing...don't let anyone tell you it's not good for you!

Oh onion, you did! The current rediscovered jar is the Mom-mom salt! I had just been grinding it up since I had the new salt grinder from ninny. Don't worry, you're the salt master!

Oh thank you so much Katy. I did not want my salt master title usurped by counterfeit salt lovers...
