    I avoid using salt because I am heart patient and it frustrates my husband to no end.

    I finally moved the salt out of the cabinet and placed it next to the stove.

    Silly question, where does your salt and pepper permanently reside? In a cabinet, on the table, on the stove top? And why?

      I have a tupperware container of salt in the pantry, and a shaker of salt next to the stove.

    I keep a litle to hand in the navel of a naked virgin, he is getting a bit fed up with it now though !

    Seriously, we keep it in an old plastic peanut butter tub with a screw top and it is damp and almost unuseable.  I am thinking of getting an earthenware pot with a loose lid.

    In the cupboard next to the stove. The occasional steam from the stove would make it clump I would think.

    Ever since my 1 year old brother used it as a rattle - needless to say we now keep the salt in high places

    With the other spices in a cool dry cabinet. Best place to preserve freshness.

    I keep the original container it comes in in the back of the cabinet, and in a closed/sealed plastic container.  Why?  Back of the cabinet because I don't need the original container very often.  Sealed plastic container:  Ants have been known to show up in the house for three weeks in June.  I'm always ready for them.  mad  I do always have one pretty salt/pepper set or another on a kitchen bench.  They're both for decoration and my own use.  With no small children in the home or visiting, I don't have to worry about the small-kids factor.

      I'm the only one who uses salt in my family; but I pretty much use all food as a delivery system for it.  hmm  (I never introduced salt to my kids and always aimed to serve them as much food with little or not salt in it; so I broke the "cycle of salt" in the family with my kids' generation.  There's no help for me, though.  I'm addicted.

        It all depends on how you prepare it Brandon. For example steamed, broiled and grilled foods don't need salt especially if you season them well with herbs and spices.

    My salt and pepper reside wherever the last person to use it left it. Which tends to help keep my own sodium consumption down.

    okay....well my salt grinder (rocks) sits on my window sill...used for cooking - i only put salt shakers on the table when i have guests for dinner - in case someone uses it...i only started using salt a few years ago...i was raised without using salt because it is naturally in many food items....i've acquired a taste for it now

    Salt is right next to the pepper grinder and olive oil - on the counter next to the stove! I think the trick to a great meal is adding the exact amount of salt and pepper.

    I keep my salt in a jar on a shelf on the opposite side of the stove. The heat from the stove tend to harden the salt (from my experience).
