Of course, as I am always inclined to do, I made some changes to the original (which you can find here) and substituted less expensive ingredients for some of the pricier ones called for. The results were still delicious.
First off, I noticed the sea salt in the recipe, and knew immediately that I wouldn’t be using that, since it’s much more expensive than the regular table salt I ended up using.
Salt is salt, so there’s simply no reason to pay 5-10x times the price for it, for an absolutely indiscernible difference in flavor. I recommend holding firm against marketing hype and the pressures of lifestyle cachet in making your food choices.
Salt is just one such example.
