So, what is salmiakk?

Salmiakk, also known as ammonium chloride, is a unique food ingredient that adds a distinct salty and sour flavor to dishes. It is commonly used in Nordic cuisine, especially in savory snacks and candies. Salmiakk has a strong odor and a sharp taste that can be polarizing for some palates. Despite its strong flavor profile, salmiakk is widely used in Scandinavian cooking and is considered a cultural staple. Its use in food can be traced back to the 16th century and it continues to be a popular ingredient in traditional Nordic recipes.
