I was going through some recipes and they were all somehow calling for "kosher salt". I found it particularly offensive as salt is a dietary staple, and it's not like "kosher salt" is salt with some kind of spice in it, it's all just sodium chloride. I think there might be a difference in crystal size between "table salt" and "kosher salt". Probably the recipes which called for it were all from America, I don't think I've seen this term "kosher salt" in recipes from other English speaking countries, suspect it is purely American. It seems that they are making an unfair profit from a very basic commodity, and through the naming almost claiming to have invented that commodity.
