A Kosher table is a good investment. Kosher tableware is one of the top selling items in department stores and specialty stores. And a large part of the reason is the high quality of this type of tableware.
Kosher tableware has been around for thousands of years. Before it was invented by the Catholic Church, Jews were using similar tableware to serve their meals. Then Jews were not allowed to eat pork and many foods that are considered pork by the Christians are allowed by the Jewish faith. So they used the same tableware to serve their food as Christians did.
The word Kosher means God is my G-d. So when they started serving food on their table, the first thing that went into that bowl were fish and shellfish. Jews have believed that these animals were meant to be eaten only on Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. The second bowl went into the first bowl, right before going to the chuppah or religious suit.
They had salt mixture in each plate, so they would know what they were eating. It was a time when many religions had to find common ground and there was no better place to start than with the Jewish faith. The salt is a common preservative today, but the bowls were still metal.
Salt was also used for other purposes in the days before refrigeration. A bowl of fresh vegetables could freeze. Any potatoes that were leftovers were dried in the sun on the outside, but within a few hours they became salty and delicious. The Salt Company is named after the salt containers in which the salt was placed. The first container was put in the ground by Jewish settlers who came to America.
Salt production began as a salt factory, then salt mines. When the first products were made, people already knew what was good for them. Nowadays, salt is found almost everywhere in nature. It can be found in almost everything from salt, to coffee, to chocolate, to tea. In a way, salt is everywhere.
Salt is a primary ingredient in Kosher tableware. Each type of salt is meant to be Kosher. This includes some table salt that is not kosher.
The Kosher Krud or Glaze is used to protect table tops and utensils. There are three types of Krud. Crude, High tech and Premium. Crude is the cheapest and holds the least amount of salt.
Premium has more salt than Crude but less than High tech. Each type has its own strengths and weaknesses. Some Table salt in Kosher stores is Premium.
There is a very unique kosher salt called – The Kosher Water Marble. This particular Kosher salt contains nearly three hundred various minerals to help the food stay fresh longer.
The Water Marble has a unique mixture of five different minerals. These minerals include clay, sodium, magnesium, sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate. The combination of these minerals helps retain moisture to keep food fresh and flavorful.
Buying organic products is not only good for your health, but it is good for the earth as well. Your Kosher table is just as important as any of your other tableware.
