Third time i've bought this bulk salt which lasts a long time. best tasting, high quality salt with full minerals. i dry about one quart of salt spread out on a stainless steel pan (can do it in glass as well) in a low-temperature oven. gets very crunchy when dry. then i chop it up and fill a quart mason jar. then it's ready to be used for any purpose, including filling my ceramic salt grinders, or using directly in salting pasta water, etc. i will also occasionally use my mortar and pestle to grind up a larger amount of salt for party-sized cooking. i store the rest in a cool, dry location. enjoy!
