Thank you arcochr, that was very helpful. I will try it.
Hi Reentje, Here is some information I got regarding the different salts when taking a cooking class. I hope it helps. For the cook's purposes, the main difference between salts is in their texture. Table salt's fine granules dissolve quickly, making it the preferred salt of bakers. Sea salt and kosher salt possess larger, irregular grains that add a delightful crunch and hit of briny flavor when sprinkled on food at the last minute. Generally, savvy cooks prefer kosher salt when cooking, since its coarse texture is easier to take a pinch of when seasoning savory dishes. Kosher salt is particularly useful in preserving, because its large crystals draw moisture out of meats and other foods more effectively than other salts.
Reentje, you are not alone on this... I want to know too, why use Kosher salt... is there a reason?
These were delicious! I used red skin potatoes instead and they turned out beautifully.
