Himalayan Pink Salt

Asked March 4, 2019, 8:38 AM EST

Do you recommend using the Himalayans pink salt in canning? Or staying with the Morton pickling and canning salt. Thank you for your time Joyce

Himalayan pink salt is not recommended for canning and pickling because it has minerals in it and could affect the quality of the canned products, especially pickled products. I would recommend you stick to canning and pickling salt.

Thank you, that’s what I thought, so I showed your answer to my Mom...she promised to stop using the Himalayan pink salt, in her canning.
