Is your salt too wet?
Summertime is here and it is hotter than ever!
Well there are solutions! Just follow these simple steps and you should be back to using your grinder in no time.
Step 1 Spread the damp salt over the surface of a large thin baking sheet on top of parchment paper.
Step 2 Place the baking sheet on the center rack of a 250 degree oven . (if you want to keep salt in RAW food range, turn oven off once you put in the baking sheet)
Step 3 Leave in for 10-15 min. ( or as long as you want if oven is turned off)
Step 4 Break large clumps of salt and stir them together with a spatula after 10-15 min. of low-heat
Step 5 Stir as needed in case there is residual moisture and check for any remaining salt clumps
Step 6 Remove the baking sheet and place it on the top of the stove to cool.
Step 7 Place the cooled, dried salt into an airtight container and store it in a dark, dry place
We also recommend cleaning out the grinder with a toothpick or chopstick to break up clumpy salt as metal is not recommended.
Other Helpful Tips
- Super Low Temperature method is to put the salt in the Freezer for a few hours to overnight, since the freezer is dehydrating.
- Adding a few pieces of dry rice to the bottom of salt shaker may help to absorb moisture so the salt continues to flow.
- Convection ovens dry damp salts the quickest. The built-in fans circulate the hot air and vent moisture.
