I wrote about this back in January and it has been a popular post since then. Finally I decided to buy some quality black salt and make it available on ebay and etsy.

Favorite new spice! Indian black salt comes from the Himalayan Mountains and has been used for centuries in Indian cuisine as cooking and finishing salt. In addition to the supreme taste it also has some exceptional health benefits. In India black salt is recommended for people with high blood pressure and to people who are on low-salt diets, because it is lower in sodium and does not increase sodium content in the blood. It is also know for comforting intestinal gas and heartburn. It is believed to help with indigestion. It is also considered a cooling spice in ayurvedic medicine which uses this salt as a digestive. Great on: yogurt and cheese. Exceptional on summer favorites such as cucumbers, watermelon and mangoes.
