Piggy Pig Pig
I may be a novice, but I know a few things. One of the things I didn't have to be taught was to cook with kosher salt. It's coarser (which I love), perfect for pinching and it's blessed by a rabbi, which is always crucial.
I had my eye on the Nigella Lawson salt pig available at Bliss Home, but being unemployed + cheap, I didn't want to pay shipping. So I ventured out to my local Target, Bed, Bath and Beyond and World Market and came up completely empty. I couldn't find a salt pig ANYWHERE and I had two store salespeople ask me, "Salt what?" Ultimately, I bought a small glass spice jar from World Market for $2 and I imagine that will work fine for now.
Kosher salt lovers, where do you store your precious mineral?
