This process is a Jewish religious process, where meat is soaked in a brine for 24 hours before cooking.

It is easier to hold the salt flakes in your fingers, allowing even disbursement over your food. Kosher salt has a clean taste, which is felt toward the top of the tongue, Kosher salt dissolves after a fair amount of time. However, it is clear.
