Q: Bread either too salty or not salty enough! How do I adjust the recipes?
A: Salt is present in our recipes 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 zero-sodium diet, you can adjust the recipe to match your needs. The flavor will change, of course.
The recipes in our books were tested with Morton’s Kosher salt, so if you use something else, you’ll need to make some adjustments. In particular, be aware that if you swap in table salt (which is finer-ground), you need to use less. 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
