The Himalayan Salt Plate
The Charcoal Companion Himalayan Salt Plate is a block of history many years in the making. The plate comes from an enormous pink salt boulder, harvested from ancient salt mines in the far reaches of the Himalayas. That salt boulder was crafted into individual blocks or plates.
Salt plates impart a milder flavor than when using ground salt. Himalayan salt is rich in trace minerals, and has a naturally high moisture content, which allows the plate to be heated or chilled to extreme temperatures. Works wonderfully on the grill, on a gas range or even chilled in the refrigerator for serving and presenting cold foods.
How To Care For Your Salt Plate
Himalayan salt is naturally antimicrobial and requires no cleansers. After use, simply wash the salt plate under warm water and scrub lightly with a soft brush or sponge. Do not submerge the plate in water. Dry with a paper towel to remove any excess pockets of water in the plate. Air-dry the plate for at least 24 hours before next use. Store salt plate in a dry environment until next use.
Your Salt Plate's Life
Part of the charm of a Himalayan Salt Plate is the naturally occurring irregularities and fissures in the surface of the salt, none of which affect the cooking properties of the mineral. The color and form of each salt plate is unique and will change when heated. With use, the plate may develop more surface depressions and will eventually dissolve completely. Proper care of the salt plate will extend its useful life.
The Himalayan Salt Plate will be very hot during and immediately following cooking. Use a heat resistant glove when handling.
