Yo, Dr Chicken and/or anybody who has tried it...

I'm gonna do your rib roast this weekend and would just as soon use kosher salt instead of rock salt. Since the crust is a cast off anyway would it make any difference?

  • one feral kat,
    I don't have an answer for you Kat! I have started using ice cream salt instead of rock salt, and that works well! Just like the rock salt, but clear crystals with no unsightly black specks. I did talk with 2 different salt manufacturers here in Kansas and the said the rock salt has dark specks in it from the processing. Nothing to hurt using it! But, I don't like the black specks in it either, so I've switched to ice cream salt.
    BTW, I use abut 1 to 2 cups of the salt crystals to cover a 5 lb prime rib roast. You probably caught that the other day in an earlier post![p]Good luck, and let us know how it turns out![p]Dr. Chicken
