Grind your own Sea Salt

I enjoy all types of sea salt and use it every day.  Until last week I would buy fine sea salt and coarse sea salt for various applications.  I like fine sea salt for pasta water and quick seasoning and coarse sea salt for everything else.

Last week I ran out of fine sea salt and was going to buy some when a “slap your forehead” thought struck me and make me feel very silly.  Why was I buying fine sea salt when I had large quantities of coarse sea salt that could be ground in my spice grinder.  I buy most things in bulk so I had six two pound bags of Portuguese sea salt in my cupboard.  I filled the spice grinder a few times and now had a large mason jar of fine sea salt.
