I have just made my first small batch of smoked salt magic

I have used Maldon Sea Salt.

It has taken on a lovely yellow colour and tastes rather good.

I have a potato baking in the oven to try it on.

 

Something to add to my smoking repertoire ok

I heard on the radio yesterday about Vanilla Salt see here.  I wonder what the pint might be?

I'll try that again!

The 'pint' or the 'point; might be...read the text...perfect with anything chocolatey - ice cream, brownies and shortbread...sounds good to me winkwink.

They visited a place on COAST that made Vanilla and other flavoured salts.

They even supplied a special salt for Obama to go with chocolate.

Must work out a cost for supplying, say 50 or 100gms, or smoked salt.

Any suggestions? big_laugh

Simon, we would like to try out your smoked salt. Fiona loves salt – I have to be careful because of blood pressure issues but it's OK occasionally. I especially love a sprinkle of salt on baked potatoes.

I can't advise you as regards pricing but it may be worth considering an offer for a "bundle" of your top notch smoked roasted garlic + 100g of smoked salt. We are having your SRG (I am in IT and we adore our acronyms eeek ) tonight in our favourite sausage and canelli beans dish.

It may not be worth your while to offer salt separately because postage and PayPal fees may make a low cost item simply too expensive.

F adores Murray River salt, which has a pink colour. She is a salt connoisseur!

I buy it for her every year for her birthday. Cheapskate 'r' us. big_laugh

Hi Danny.

 

I need a Guinea Pig. I will send a sample to you for critical analysis. laugh

I'm was also in IT it isn't so much as acronyms, more like TLAs

"Three Letter Acronyms" big_laugh

 

A small amount of salt (about 25gms?) should be quite easy to post as it would fit in a standard 46p letter. But yes I agree adding as a bundle is a good idea.

 

I have seen the pink salt. Want to try that myself. The cost and quality though does NOT make you a cheapskate. 

 

I also have Hypertension doh and avoid salt if I can. However, natural salt in small quantities will do no harm what so ever.

 

I have just picked up some jumbo garlics today. I think I could do these at 2 heads for the £6 P&P inc if anyone is interested.

 

My friend is growing his own genuine elephant garlic. This should be ready sometime next year. He has offered me some to sell. 

I think these may be at a bit more of a premium price though. 

 

Simon

Saw some MASSIVE garlic heads in waitrose the other day, they were bigger than a spanish onion, was tempted to get one, just to see what they were like, but trying to be a bit more sensible with shopping at the mo.

That sounds like the elephant garlic. If so they are very tasty and a lot milder than normal garlic.

I've heard it said that it is related more closely to Leeks than garlic and, therefore, sweeter.

I'll try that again!
