Kosher doesn't seem a chemical concept but a religious one. The crystals shape suggests normal NaCl.

The strange thing about salt is that it is not all the same, depending on the source. I have photographed dissolved and dried Kosher salt and it appears to set up differeently than ordinary table salt, possibly because it may be non-iodized. Gourmet cooking magazines occassionaly run features on exotic salts, some of which are red or even black, and I have read that pretzel salt is a variety of sea salt from Mexico. Makes me want to dig some out of the bottom of the pretzel bag and see what it looks like.

It says "Kosher" on the container, so I have to defer to science... Wink

I'm a big fan of Alton Brown's "Good Eats" (despite my utter lack of cooking ability) and Kosher salt appears to be all he ever uses except for pickles.
