What is Kosher Salt?

Do your salt mills come with Kosher salt in them?
Sharon,

Dear Sharon
The salt supplied in the PEUGEOT mills (and not all of the mills are filled) is natural, additive free sea salt. I have had conflicting opinions on whether this makes it Kosher or not.

Some say that the salt needs to be blessed by a Rabbi - in which case the salt is not Kosher. Others say it just needs to be additive free so that Kosher foods can be made using it.

Maldon used to do a salt that was blessed by a Rabi but there was so little demand that they just sell it unblessed now.

Really, I would say that many Chefs like Kosher salt because it is very good quality salt with a good flavour and without additives rather than because of its religious meaning.
Best wishes Claire
