So, what is salmiakzout?

Salmiakzout, also known as ammonium chloride, is a unique and flavorful food ingredient that is commonly used in Scandinavian and Dutch cuisine. It has a distinctive salty taste with a hint of ammonia, making it a popular ingredient in salty licorice and other confectionery. Salmiakzout is also used as a flavor enhancer in savory dishes such as pickled herring and smoked salmon. This ingredient is typically made by reacting ammonia with hydrochloric acid, resulting in a white crystalline powder that is soluble in water. Its pungent taste and aroma make it a sought-after ingredient for those looking to add a unique and bold flavor to their culinary creations.
