Once you've purchased your Himalayan salt stone, you'll have fun experimenting with its many culinary uses! Use this guide to get started.
Use over an open flame or grill to sear food to a beautiful golden brown and enhance its flavor.
Use in an oven to bake pizzas, flat breads, or cookies and give them flavor like never before.
Serve meat, seafood or vegetables on a salt stone for an amazing presentation and added flavor.
Freeze a salt stone and smash vanilla or chocolate ice cream with caramel sauce for the best salted caramel ice cream ever!
Do you plan to use your stone for cooking or baking? If you answer yes, you must temper the stone before using for the first time. Place the stone in an oven. Turn oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit, and bake stone for 1 1/2 hours. Use right away or allow to cool. Do not skip this step. This is very important, as the stone has not experienced heat before.
Place stone on a burner grate and turn on low heat for 10 minutes, increase heat to medium for 10 minutes.
Smear a little bit of extra virgin olive oil or flavored oil (like truffle or walnut) before placing food on the salt. This will prevent the food from becoming too salty very quickly. Eat right after plating; do not use for buffet presentations.
