Gourmet Salts-We went into the Keene Co-op last month just to look about. While there we saw gourmet sea salts and I am wondering what these salts are used for? No, we can not afford to shop there but they do have some nice things such as raw milk.

In my opinion, the different types of salts have different elements of flavors. So, they add a unique flavor to dishes. Some are even smoky.

Hi Seamus Our family struggles to reduce salts in the diet and/or recipes due to sodium based health issues. While I can, personally, sort of appreciate coarse ground sea salt or Kosher salt, the fancy Himalayan ones and such are both expensive and beyond my ability to see "value" for the cash they cost. "Raw" milk is a bit different. In the USA any dairy farmer can produce just as much product as he/she wants, and take their chances on whose going to buy it. In Canada, we are federally regulated, that you purchase a "license" to produce a given "quota", and once your "quota" is gone, you may as well water the watermelons with it, as you cannot "sell" it into the highly regulated system. Mind, if someone like your self shows up the doorstep and asked for 20 imperial gallons of un pasteurised, unhomogenized "milk" then its an off the books cheap and dirty cash deal; if you get sick, its not the farmer's problem, as you went outside the "system" meant to protect you... Yes, yes, we do have a faction that is protesting this, in that for hundreds of years, people drank unprocessed product, and somehow our species continued to live, but Canada's Healthcare is publicly funded (you walk into a hospital and show them your healthcard, as opposed a certified cheque in the USA) and get treated for whatever ails you... So if you want it, hop over the border and make your own deal, I doubts US Customs are going to get their knickers in a twist! Just bring your own containers! (And expect some bargain pricing!)

chairlifter - Well, my dad was from BC and all his family still live in BC. Went to BC in '94 during Commonwealth Games and got to hang with my family for 3 great weeks.
