Kosher Salt and Lack of Flavour

January 24, 2012 - 5:45am -- Anonymous baker (not verified)

Could using kosher salt be the reason my breads have tended to be on the flavourless side of late?

The recent Larraburra loaf being just one failure, several others since then have too been underwhelming. 

I recently started using kosher salt and wonder if that could be a/the cause.

If recipe calls for 2 teaspoons salt, I use 2 teaspoons. Should I be using 3 or 4 of kosher?

I see this mentioned in many recipes on the forum, but don't know what it is.

How does it differ from ordinary salt?

How is it made?

What difference does it make in bread baking?

I should know really, as we try to keep kosher. But haven't seen it locally.

Thanks in advance - Pat.
