In your everyday baking and cooking do you use salt and could you live without it?

I do use salt in some of my cooking, probably more than I should really, but for the most part I love my pepper. I also use other spices a lot more.

I have high blood pressure so I don't put salt in anything. The problem is trying to avoid all the salt that's added to processed foods.

Ken'ts sea salt - a type of salt that is used for dosing foods.  a flavor enhancer
Sea salt is the salt of my choice. I know there are many kinds and I had hoped my post would draw the kinds used and where since this is global community... most things I cook are only salted upon serving. of course baking requires the addition of salt as part of the batter/dough. I could live without buying salt since I garden and the potatoes and things draw salt/minerals from the garden soil! Thanks for asking this question.

Yes, I do and I hardly could live without salt. It just makes things much more tasty. Even only a small amount helps, there's no need to put half a kg in your food. By the way, your question reminded me on a fairy tale. It's international, the motive was used by Grimm brothers and I have read another version also. A king asks his three daugters, how much they are loving him and they had to compare their love with something. The youngest one said, she loves her father like salt, and was banished from the country. In the second version the king was punished, salt was disappeared from whole country, and he had no chance to import it also. Then he understood, how wrong his decision was. Now back to the real life: even the best thing can be a poison when you are exaggerating with...

I don't even think I have salt in my cupboard, but when I go buy prepared food and the sodium content is outragous...I am wondering if they are trying to make us sick so the health care system can make money......

there's always salt in my cooking . . . though we always practice a low salt diet at home but it doesn't mean we need not use of salt anymore. it's always the salt that brings out the flavor of our dish.

I try to avoid salt when I cook as much as I can. I found that in most dishes I can replace it with lemon juice and get a nice flavor without the sodium. I've switched my butter to unsalted, but popcorn just doesn't taste the same with it, so I just regular butter for just that purpose. :)
