Frances Said:Is it ok to use kohser salt instead of regular salt for recipes?
We Answered:yes, actually most cook prefer kosher salt to iodized. it's not recommended for baking, though.
"Chefs often prefer kosher salt because its texture allows the chef to pinch a larger quantity of salt and evenly sprinkle the flakes on food. Also, because of the absence of iodine, kosher salt tends to make flavors cleaner and brighter than iodized salt, which has a slightly metallic flavor. The Food Network's Alton Brown generally recommends the use of Kosher Salt for this reason."
Nellie Said:low salt recipes and snack ideas?
We Answered:Substituting black pepper (or other spices) to food, instead of salt, help give your food a lot of flavour, is better for your health and very tasty. Also try sea salt, and only use the minum amount on food. In many stores they now sell salt free nuts and snaks. Always look at the sodium content, and make sure is not higher than 10/14% per serving.
Greg Said:Why do we add salt to dessert recipes?
We Answered:It depends on the recipe. If it calls for "all purpose flour," you add salt and baking powder to make it rise. If it calls for self-rising flour... this is going to sound odd, but it actually makes some recipes taste richer. Butter has a lot of salt, so a lot of times adding "salt" to a recipe fools your tastebuds into thinking it has a lot of butter (particular in frostings and the like). It also offsets the sweetness, making it more palatable.

Daniel Said:Does anyone have or know of low salt or no salt recipes?
Wade Said:What are some low salt recipes?
We Answered:I am on low sodium diet. And really nothing pre-packaged. Stick with fresh fruits, veggies, meats (check on chicken when you buy it. Some Tyson breasts have 180 mg of sodium per 4 oz, some only have 40-HUGE difference), and pasta and rice are sodium free.
I have also heard that oolong tea is good to help rid the body of bloating from sodium and so on. I am going to start drinking it today, and we will just see.
Just remember that most lunch meats, cheese, even thanksgiving turkey, milk, bread, ketchup, mustard, broths, peanut butter etc... all have quite a bit of sodium.
Buy no salt added ketchup, stewed tomatoes, you can even buy so salt added canned corn, green beans, peas etc....
Frozen veggies are okay.
