Food's just not worth eating without salt and pepper. Picture a baked potato without salt: blech. An under-seasoned chicken breast? No thank you. Any home cook worth their salt should always have a healthy supply of S&P on hand. Whether you prefer sea salt or kosher salt, pre-ground black pepper or the stuff you grind yourself, just take your pick and lay it on thick. The proper seasoning brings out all your food's finest flavors, so you can enjoy that burger, pot roast, or veggie stir fry even more.
Let's start with salt, shall we? Between all the different types of sea salt and kosher salt and table salt it's easy to get a little turned around. On top of that, you might also be wondering about the benefits of iodized salt or asking yourself “what is iodized salt?” in the first place. Kosher vs iodized salt vs sea salt — which one's right for you?. A word to the wise: Don't overthink it. Iodized salt is fortified with iodine, a basic element your body needs. Kosher salt is usually iodine-free, with slightly larger crystals. And sea salt comes from evaporated saltwater, with even bigger crystals. It's really just a matter of personal preference. But, actually, why choose? There's plenty room in your kitchen for kosher salt and a little sea salt, too.
