For Hot Foods
Make sure the block is completely dry. If used previously, the block should have rested for at least 24 hours. Himalayan salt blocks like to be pampered, especially at first. So, as a rule, be especially careful the first few times you heat up your salt plate. The first few times you heat up your salt block, fissures and cracks will appear, and the colour may change from its original pink to a whiter colour. This is normal. However, after successive uses, you may find that the salt block regains some of its original hue, largely as a result of washing.
For a Gas Range: Put your salt block on the stove top. Set heat to low, give the block at least 15 minutes to heat up. You may notice moisture accumulating at the edges. As the salt block heats, this will evaporate off. The slower you do this, the better.
For an Electric Range:Â If heating on the stovetop, select a circular ring of metal, such as a tart pan with a pop out bottom, pastry ring, or wok ring, and place it on the burner. Place the salt block on top of the ring. Place a circular ring of metal such as a tart pan with a pop-out bottom to create a small air gap between the heating element and the block. Once set up, heat similarly to a gas range. DO NOT PLACE DIRECTLY ONTO AN ELECTRIC RING ELEMENT.
For a domestic gas or electric Grill:Â Place your salt block on the grill tray/pan and keep at a lower level within the grill compartment. Donâ€™t try to heat it up faster by raising the grill towards the heat source. 15 minutes under the grill should work.
For a BBQ Grill:Â Place your salt block on the grate. If using a charcoal grill, keep the coals to one side and place the block on the other side, to expose it to less direct heat. If using a gas grill, start the heat on low as you would with a gas range. Increase heat slowly until the block is ready to use, as described in the gas range instructions.
For an Oven:Â We do not recommend using an oven to heat your salt block, as damage to your salt block and/or your oven may result.
Â Preparing your salt block for the 1st time: Its recommended that you heat your salt block slowly. 20 minutes on low, then 20 minutes on medium and finally 20 minutes on high. This will have prepared your block for use. You only need to do this once.
How do you know when your block is ready to use? If you have a laser thermometer, the block should be at least 500 degrees F. If you donâ€™t, simply sprinkle a few drops of water on the block. If they sizzle away instantly, the block should be hot enough.
Caring for a Salt Block:
Cleaning: If hot, allow your block to cool completely first. Moisten the salt block with a damp sponge (do not use soap). Scrub with a soft brush or green scouring (non abrasive) pad to remove any stuck matter, and wipe clean with the sponge. Try to keep the block as dry as possible â€“ the less water the better. Repeat until the block is free of any cooked-on food. Tamp dry with a paper towel or clean cloth, and set on a drying rack. This process removes only a very thin layer of the salt and preserves a relatively smooth surface.
Treated with care, a salt block can provide long-term use. The powerful antimicrobial properties of the salt insure that it is always proper and ready for future use, with no need for detergents.
Storing: Store in any location where humidity is at a minimum. You can store the block wrapped in a dish or paper towel and put in the kitchen cupboard.
Â DO NOT put the salt slab in the dishwasher or use detergents when cleaning.
Â PLEASE NOTE:
The salt slabs are a natural product no two blocks will be exactly the same in colour, so if you buy 2, 3 or more, they will all be different in colour.
The Barbecue is by far the most versatile function for Himalayan salt blocks, allowing you to cook things you could never do on a barbecue before. No food or marinate falling onto the coals, heat up previously impossible food items such as fragile fruits and fragile vegetables, or just your usual veggie favourites like Quorn and Tofu.
