Can anyone suggest a shop that will deliver kosher salt?  I want to do some pickling and table salt won't do the trick.

 

And even better, is there a Thai alternative?

 

Thanks very much!

I would think plain non-iodized salt would be readily available.  Ask for the same salt used to make pickled mustard - Pak Gat Dong ผักกาดดอง.

If you are heading from BKK toward Ratchaburi or Pet buri, stop off near Amphawa. get a kilo of sea salt for pocket change from store holders. If it is too coarse grain for your needs, throw some in a plastic bag and roll it with a rolling pin or even a bottle. If the bottle is beer, you can enjoy the contents at the same time.

I do a lot of "pickling" and use sea salt.  It's available at the local Ma and Pa grocery store at 10 baht for a kilo bag or 120 baht for a 50 kilo bag.  I usually buy the 1 kilo bag.

Thanks very much for the replies.

 

Ma & Pa's sea salt it is!  😁

The sea salt that I use is not ground fine it comes in larger granules.  If I use it in a brine that is cooked/warmed, I use it as is.  If I make something like sauerkraut I usually put it in a small food processor first to get fine granules.
