Salt, Kosher is a distinct small, flake-style crystalkosher salt

Kosher salt dissolves quickly and evenly into foods when cooking and adds a slight crunch when sprinkled over dishes.

Usually twice as much kosher salt by volume replaces table salt.

Serving size is 1/4 teaspoon, 1.2 grams and 0 calories.

Kosher salt is used on meats, chicken, vegetables, pasta or cooked dishes and for brushing on breads, rools, bagels and soft pretzels before baking.
