Q: Bread either too salty or not salty enough! How do I adjust the recipes?
A: The recipes in the book were written with Morton’s Kosher salt. We had many people test the recipes and the amount we settled on was pleasing to most of us. The salt is present in the recipe to enhance the flavor, so you should adjust the amount to suit your palate! This may take a couple of tries to get it exactly how you like it.
For those of you on a diet that requires a low or no sodium diet, you should adjust the recipe to match your needs. The flavor will change, of course.
If you are using table salt instead of kosher, then you will need to decrease the amount by quite a bit. Here is how it breaks down according to several different baking sites:
You will find the same saltiness if you use:
1 tablespoon Table Salt
1 1/2 tablespoons Morton’s Kosher Salt
2 tablespoons Diamond Kosher Salt
