Rock salt recipes

Salt crystals derived from the huge seams of impacted salt that have formed below dried-out, underground saline lakes. The crystals are quite large and hard so are best ground in a salt mill. Cooking salt is refined rock salt and common table salt is finely ground and refined rock salt with magnesium carbonate added to make it free-running and damp-free.
