Natural Rock Salt

Named after the "tide men" of the region - men who lived off the shore - Tidman's coarse rock salt for grinders is suggested for use with meats and fish especially, but can be applied much like Kosher salt. Characterized by a an almost sweet finish and a buttery texture.

Rock salt is harvested from underground mineral deposits, and the case of Tidman’s Rock Salt, it’s mined in Chesire, in Britain. Unlike other salts, Tidman’s is additive free, which means this coarse salt is perfectly suited to finishing dishes. The great price point also makes it a great option for curing meats, where liberal quantities are demanded. Use this salt with meats and fish prior to roasting or grilling or put in a grinder and grind over finished dishes.

You can use rock salt just like any other table salt. What is rock salt? Rock salt is so called because rather than sea salt, harvested from live seas, this kind of salt is mined from old oceans and lakes that have evaporated, sometimes a millennia ago. The salt mines are underground and the salt is harvested in rock, later crushed. Chemically speaking, rock salt and sea salt are 99% identical. Sea salt tends to have a sweeter, more ocean flavor, while rock salt has a pleasant bitterness. One added benefit of rock salt is that because those seas and lakes were buried so deep underground so many years ago, they’re largely pure and uncontaminated.
