“Why is there kosher salt, but no kosher pepper?”

There is “koshering salt” or “kosher salt,” a larger grain salt used for removing surface blood from meat. However, there is no product called “kosher pepper.”

“If there’s kosher salt why isn’t there kosher pepper?” was posted on Twitter on October 1, 2011. “How comes there’s kosher salt, but no kosher pepper?” was posted on Twitter on January 25, 2018.


Wikipedia: Koshering salt
Koshering salt, usually referred to as kosher salt, is a variety of edible salt popular in North America that has much larger grain size than some common table salt. Like common table salt, kosher salt consists mainly of the chemical compound sodium chloride.

Unlike some common table salt, kosher salt typically contains no added iodine. Some brands will include anticaking agents in small amounts.

Name
The term “kosher salt” comes from its use in making meats kosher by removing surface blood, not from its being made in accordance with the guidelines for kosher foods as written in the Torah, as nearly all salt is kosher, including ordinary table salt.
