That's a beautiful photo. :)

Thanks, the artful transition from paint splattered concrete to felt carpet underlayment was intended to contrast with the hard edges of the stainless steel pot.

 

In other words, the composition was a complete accident 😄😄

I thought that was what they used for the roads here but I could certainly be mistaken on that!

You are not mistaken. It is (was) also sold for hand crank ice cream freezers, too. It has unspecified impurities so may not be a good choice for food contact.

I went down another rabbit hole.  Indeed, most rock salt is not to eat.  Morton Ice Cream salt has delicious pictures on the box but the label says "Not For Human Consumption."  Fortunately on amazon I found some culinary rock salt specified for food.

 

This is what I just ordered...  (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)

I reuse the salt.  It would be an expensive dinner otherwise.  I'd use rock salt if I had it, but what I use is Diamond Kosher salt.

 

Is the whole potato covered in salt whilst baking or is it just nested in it?

 

FWIW i do russets in the CSO at 400f steam for an hour and have been happy

Thanks. I learned more than one thing today, so have exceeded my goal!

A bit uninspred this evening, but it did its job. Chicken breast in spicy breading, plain boiled potatoes and tomatoes. Afrer taking the photograph, I did add some piri-piri sauce for extra heat and lubrication.

 

Followed by the last of my durian.

More from the backlog.

Pan fried egg pasta (home made, leftover) with brie, mushrooms, thyme, eggs.

A salad of lettuce, eggs and a sweet-spicy mustard dressing with lots of pepper and some honey. (worry not, it was mixed for serving)

Wine.

The water softening salt I saw on amazon was pellets.

 

 Use that crusher  thing you have.

Pizza pan on the lava stone. Stone to shield the birds from direct heat and the pizza pan to keep the stone clean.
