Salt - With Anti-Caking Agent!
« on: October 06, 2011, 10:16:13 AM »
I didnt realize a box of kosher salt I bought has an anti-caking agent.  I made a few hard cheeses with it - was mixed into the curds. Will these cheeses be any good?  How could this salt affect the cheeses?  Thanks.

It will affect flavour development a little, but not as much as if you'd used iodised salt. I've done the same as you when I've run out of pure salt crystals and there has been a difference, though not too much: the results were edible.

Was your link incorrect?  It brings me to the Glossary page and I didnt see anything relevant there
