Customer Review

on November 3, 2012
Real Salt seems like a good value, but unfortunately it is laced with grit. I've sensed the grit especially on eggs. Today this was confirmed when I cooked 2 cups of dried garbanzo beans in my pressure cooker with 1 teaspoon of this salt. After draining the cooked chickpeas(which had been thoroughly rinsed beforehand), there was some sandy grit at the bottom, the same color and size as the darker specks found in the salt. If it didn't dissolve under pressure for 40 minutes, then it is sand and not salt. I won't be buying it again.

UPDATE 11/11/12
I contacted the Redmond company through their website to let them know about my dissatisfaction with the product. They were very kind to send a replacement package along with some samples of a few of their other products, including a sample of powder salt which is not noticeably gritty and will work perfectly for pickling. They were very responsive to my concerns which I really appreciated. The replacement bag of salt still has some grit in it, but I can use this salt for the majority of my cooking and baking where the grit hasn't been noticeable. I changed my rating from 1 to 3 stars because it's good-for-you salt for most uses.
