Earlier this year, Samin Nosrat's cookbook Salt Fat Acid Heat was published. (If you haven't read it yet, do yourself a favor and get a copy). Samin approached me about making a limited edition salt grinder to celebrate the book, based on a Salt Grinder a friend brought her back from Mexico City years ago. The salt grinder is particularly helpful for grinding Sel gris, a grey sea salt that tends to come in moist clumps. The salt grinder is textured on the inside, and made from a porous clay. It will absorb the moisture from the salt at the same time as it grinds the large crystals into a fine powder. I don't suggest using the salt grinder for anything besides salt.
Each salt grinder measures approximately 4 inches x 2 inches and comes with a small pestle.
