Did you know?

Sea salt is produced by evaporating water from saltwater from oceans and some lakes, while table salt is extracted from underground mine deposits. Although by weight the amount of sodium in both is almost equal, we decided to use sea salt in the Pickled Cucumbers recipe; less processing is involved in producing sea salt and it leaves traces of some additional minerals. Both salts contain iodine, an excessive amount of which in your diet can result in nausea and headaches. Make sure you’re not over-seasoning with salt, and you’ll be fine!
