Kosher/Sea Salt vs. regular table salt question

eartha | Jun 26, 2008 08:51 PM

Please help me with the correct adjustments: I prefer to use Kosher or Sea Salt in my recipes but I don't get the same results as using table salt.

For example, yesterday I made cucumbers and onions in vinigar for a simple hot weather recipe. The recipe called for 1 cup vinigar, 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar. I used 1/3 cup sugar because 1 cup is too sweet for my taste. The recipe said to add salt and pepper to taste. I used 1 tablespoon Sea Salt. The end result wasn't very good to my palate.

I don't think I know how to convert properly. Thanks for your advice.
