    How much does a Himalayan Salt Block cost

  2. on 27 Jan 2008 at 3:02 pmMark Bitterman

    The prices for Himalayan Salt Plates are determined by the size of the piece and the quality of the halite ore that makes it up. All that we sell online are of the highest quality, and prices range from around 15 to 48 dollars depending on the size. Very large Himalayan salt platters are also available, such as a 9 x 18 x 1.5 inch platter for more. More information is available at http://www.atthemeadow.com/salt/himalayan-pink-salt-blocks.html

    Can you use them more than once? Is there a cleaning procedure?

    Information on cleaning these is available at The Meadow http://www.atthemeadow.com under Education at the bottom of the page.

    “Caring for your Pakistani Pink Himalayan Salt Plate

    After each use, rinse your salt plate with warm water, scrub with a soft brush, brillo pad, or green scouring pad to remove any adhering protein or other matter, and rinse again. Tamp dry with a paper towel or clean cloth. Set on a drying rack. This will process removes a very thin layer of the salt. Treated with care, a large salt block can provide dozens of uses. The powerful antimicrobial properties of the salt insure that it is always proper and ready for future use, with no need for detergents.”

    I have heard of using a salt block as a cutting surface, but can’t substantiate the rumor. Do you know what sort of salt might be used and where it may be purchased? Would the care of that be similar to the care of those used for cooking and serving?

    You can absolutely use a salt plate as a cutting surface. Just be advised that they are fairly soft, so any rough sawing on the surface will score it. On the flip side, after repeated uses and rinses, the score marks are diminished and look cool. You can buy any number of shapes, basically just based on what you are after. The huge platters are nice for serving and cutting larger foods or assortments of foods. The good news is that because you won’t be heating your salt block, you can just purchase the Regular Grade, which cost less.

    I would like some info mailed to me about these boards. I’m very interested and think this is just a great idea for cutting and preping veggies on.
