Do you Need to use Pickling Salt?
Pickling salt – which is also referred to as canning salt, is typically called for in most recipes because of its purity.
Picking salt is pure granulated salt with no additives like anti-caking ingredients.
It’s the additives in regular salts that can cause problems with your pickling liquids turning murky or cloudy.
You can use a quality Kosher salt if you can’t find the pickling salt, just make sure it is a pure salt with no additional additives.
