Himalayan Salt Stone

Scott Hagnas wrote a good piece recently for the Recipes section of Performance Menu.  It’s not really a recipe per se, but rather an interesting way to prepare and cook food — on a solid block of pink Himalayan salt.

It is basically a cutting board made of pure salt.  You can use it as a cutting board but, as Scott points out, it gets really interesting when you use it as a cooking surface.

A little Googling led us to this informative post on Salt News which yielded a host of further details.

We noticed that both Scott and the folks at Salt News seem to agree on where to buy them:  The Meadow in Portland, Oregon.

As you might expect, being all the way from the Himalayas, they’re not cheap.  And there are lots of sizes, shapes and different types to choose from.  Luckily the good folks at The Meadow provide the full skinny on selecting and using the right salt block for what you need.

I recently found Himalayan salt plates, bowls and slabs at Sustainable Sourcing https://secure.sustainablesourcing.com. I love all of their other products and will be trying these out too. They are an eco-friendly company and they donate to environmental causes which I love.
