The Importance of Salt in Baking
Have you ever wondered why there is salt in many baking recipes? Salt is an important step in baking, because it activates the baking soda – helping the batter rise as it bakes. So don’t skimp when a recipe calls for salt. I use Real Salt. It’s mined in the US and it is the perfect addition to both my savory and sweet recipes. I literally tell everyone about Real Salt, because it tastes better than any other salt I’ve used.
Pumpkin Fall Feels
