Salt used in mills (and pepper too)

The little plastic disposable salt mill that we have is now out of salt. Guess I will just need to make a salt mill now...

To those that make salt (and pepper) mills. Where do you get the salt and pepper from?

Dv,
look for the specialty grocery stores, like ones that carry organic stuff, ethnic foods, etc. They will usually have a variety to choose from.

Well I wasn't think that obvious...

But I was looking around online and discovered that there are many many kinds of salt... it was like the first time I discovered that woods other then oak, maple, cherry, and walnut existed

If all else fails you can buy the salt and pepper from Craft Supplies USA. They have a pretty good selection of quality mechanisms as well.

Minerals in salt

I would suggest visiting an organic food store in your area. There you will be able to discuss the variations in all their salts. There are definite differences in the salts available, i.e., each has various differences in the minerals present in the salt.

I checked the Local Kroger when I was shopping with my wife. They had salt labeled "for grinders" for about $3 for 12 oz. But the whole pepper corns they had were almost $11 for 18oz.

That seemed high to me.

Salt and Peppercorns Sources

I was just talking with an Asian friend of mine and he suggests checking out the local markets like Harry's for instance or any of the larger market grocery stores along Bufford Highway as they sell in bulk. Sam's has been found to have these two items quite often.

Heck, make new friends with your neighbors and give them a pound of salt or peppercorns if a bulk purchase is way too much for you and your family. Maybe even show them your hand made grinder and get a new customer.
