Salt blocks are a big deal, and they are getting bigger. They bring an otherworldly beauty to any cooking. Luminous crystals shot through with hues of rose, garnet and ice offer a template for preparing food that is as arrestingly visual as it is tantalisingly tasty. Salt experts always outline the benefits of the ancient practice of cooking on salt blocks. Salt blocks are not only beautiful, but will appeal to people interested in grilling, baking, general cooking, curing, and notably, entertaining.
Salt Cooking Block Care Instructions
Be sure the block is completely dry before use
If used previously, the block should have rested
Use any heating source
Please take care of safety
If hot, allow your block to cool completely first.
Moisten the salt block with a damp sponge (do not use soap).
Scrub with a soft brush or green scouring pad to remove any stuck matter, and wipe clean with the sponge.
Try to keep the block as dry as possible – the less water the better.
Repeat until the block is free of any cooked on food.
Tamp dry with a paper towel or clean cloth, and set on a drying rack. This process removes only a very thin layer of the salt and preserves a relatively smooth surface.
The powerful antimicrobial properties of the salt ensure that it is always proper and ready for future use, with no need for detergents.
Store in any location where humidity is at a minimum. I keep many of mine on the windowsill. If you live in a humid climate, wrap the block in a towel and put in the cupboard.
