A fine-grained salt that is very pure, which is produced without any additives such as iodine or anti-caking chemicals. This salt is used for pickled meat dishes and for canning a variety of fruits and vegetables, because it prevents the brine from becoming cloudy in canned foods. Traditional salts contain anti-caking chemicals that cause the cloudy effect in the brine solution, thus the reason for using Pickling Salt. Since it is a very fine and concentrated salt, it can be added lightly to foods to nicely enhance the flavor.
It is also referred to as canning salt, and is available in all supermarkets.
