Salt is an ingredient we reach for while cooking almost any recipe. Just a small sprinkle on almost any food item will make the taste instantly enhanced. It ranges the spectrum of cuisines and culture. When you buy sea salt in a container from the store, it doesn’t look the prettiest sitting on the counter. I’ve pulled together five different ways you can store your sea salt depending on the style of your kitchen.
Modern | Does this look familiar? If you are an Alton Brown fan, you would have seen him using this salt container in his old show Good Eats. I love that the top flips up and it comes with a tiny little spoon to scoop out a pinch of salt.
Trendy | Incorporate Pantone’s color of the year into your kitchen with this salt box. The rose quartz color is a lovely contrast against the white salt and the modern font adds a little bit of a retro detail.
Traditional | I rely on my Le Creuset dutch oven for a majority of my winter soups and stews, but their salt crock will be useful everyday of every seasons. If you already own a Le Creuset piece, find the color that matches your items. If this will be your first investment, you will be picking a classic item that will be used daily!
Shabby Chic | This dueling salt and pepper storage container reminds me of something Joanna Gaines would have in her farmhouse kitchen. I love the creamy color and practicality of the two seasonings in one.
Eclectic | Dreaming of collecting cookbooks, artwork and spices from around the world? This salt box will be the perfect addition to your kitchen with it’s character and unique, eco-friendly bamboo material.
If you are currently buying and cooking with regular table salt, I think it’s time you give sea salt a try. While it sounds more expensive, sea salt is only about $2.00 at the grocery store and it will last you for months. My favorite sea salt is from Trader Joe’s and it’s only $1.79! The most notable difference between table salt and sea salt is the texture. I also believe sea salt has better flavor, but you can learn about all the specifics in this article. I hope you not only give sea salt a try, but also invest in a stylish way to store it for everyday use in your kitchen.
