Here’s how those salts measure up:
1 teaspoon table salt = 1½ teaspoons Morton kosher salt or Alessi coarse kosher salt = 2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt (in the red box; not finely cut)
The sodium content of Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt is ¼ teaspoon (0.7 grams) equals 280mg of Sodium.
When Publix stopped selling Diamond Crystal kosher salt, I purchased Alessi kosher salt and Morton kosher salt as a substitute. I ended up over salting the meals because I was accustomed to the taste and feel of cooking with Diamond Crystal kosher salt. As a result, I purchased this three pound box to refill my user-friendly leftover cylindrical shaker container that I bought previously at Publix.
Although I use Diamond Crystal kosher salt for almost all my seasoning needs, I still keep plenty of iodine-free table salt on hand for salting pasta water, brining beans, and baking. The table salt’s finer texture is better for those needs, and table salt is also cheaper to buy. For my homemade nutrient-rich bone broth, I use B01EX4UOWM Light Grey Celtic coarse sea salt, 1 lb. bag- Pack of 2 which is high in minerals that our body needs and is also Kosher Certified. Light Grey Celtic coarse sea salt is best dissolved in broths and soups because it is naturally too moist to evenly sprinkle as a finishing salt.
The only ingredient in Diamond Crystal kosher salt is salt. There are no anti-caking agents and no chemically-tasting iodine. As a result, Diamond Crystal kosher salt needs to be stored in a dry cabinet away from moisture. If sprinkling over steaming hot food, it is best to pour the salt into a measuring spoon and then sprinkle the salt over the steaming food because if you sprinkle directly from the container or shaker onto the steaming food, the salt will absorb moisture and cake/clump inside the container. I found this out the hard way.
Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt comes in a large 3 pound box that will last our household a long time. I wish the box was resealable, but since it isn't, we dumped the salt into a canister to keep out potential critters which only seem to pop up when there is unprotected sugar, flour, or salt.
This salt is larger in size than traditional table salt. While traditional table salt is tiny grains of salt that you can barely see, this is more like flakes of salt that are highly visible on your food when you sprinkle it on. The flakes are large enough that they can be seen, but small enough that you do not have to grind this salt in order to use it.
Taste wise, I was skeptical about switching to a kosher salt, I had no idea what to expect. As it turns out, it tastes like salt, just like it should. It is however less salty than traditional table salt, so I find myself using 2-3 times more salt with each use than I would use if I were using regular table salt.
The less salty taste was most noticeable when baking. I love to make baked goods and most of my recipes call for 1 teaspoon of salt. I now need to use 2-3 teaspoons of salt to get the same flavor results. When I double the salt, the taste of the recipe is the same, which is a good thing. Ingredient wise, this salt contains one ingredient: SALT!
I would definitely buy this salt again in the future as it's the only salt I've come across that does not contain a caking agent.
