Fine Grind, Coarse or Flaked?
In addition to being available in a variety of colours sea salt can also be bought in various sizes/shapes. Fine grind or the smallest size of crystal easily dissolves into baking recipes or soup. However, if you want your salt not to immediately dissolve and to be displayed with the spices in meat dish choose a flaked or coarse salt. Flakes are flatter and dissolve sooner than the angular coarse sea salt. Coarse salt is considered a finishing or final salt. When lightly sprinkled on dehydrated organic vegetable crackers before baking it adds flavor and crunch which would otherwise melt into the cracker if fine grind was used.
