What Is A Salt Pig And Why Should You Use It Instead Of A Shaker?
Salt pigs are useful containers for holding ordinary or artisan salt. Traditionally, they are ceramic or clay with an unglazed interior to absorb moisture and prevent clumping.
The gaping open mouths of most salt pigs are large enough for fingertip access to your favorite salts, allowing quick pinches while whipping up masterpiece meals.
Compared to salt shakers or grinders, salt pigs help you more accurately gauge how much salt is entering the food. These pigs often come with scoops.
While these containers can also be made of marble, wood, glass, or bamboo, those made from ceramic, clay, or pottery are the ones that provide a dehumidifying effect.
