Seasoning with the Saints: “Blessed Christian Salt” Challenges Kosher Salt for the Palates of the Faithful

christian-blessed-saltChristians it appears have been fuming every time that they go into a store and see Kosher salt but look endlessly and unsuccessfully for the Christian salt. Enter former barber Joe Godlewski. Godlewski does not just share God’s moniker, he became God’s instrument in creating “Blessed Christian Salt,” sea salt blessed by an Episcopalian priest.

Not since Lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt has there been such excitement over spiritually-correct sodium chloride.

Currently, if you want to season with the saints, Blessed Christian Salt is available only by Internet. However, he now plans to introduce a whole range of Christian food products. The salt will be available at http://www.memphi.net, the Web site of Memphis, Tenn.-based seasonings manufacturer Ingredients Corporation of America. They will be targeting Christian stores for customers who want to put Jesus back into seasoning.

ICA President Damon S. Arney said that his company and Godlewski, 73, will share the proceeds and some unspecified percentage of the money will be given to Christian charities. It is not clear what foods will be marketed in the Blessed line but Angel food cake seems a natural.

Of course, kosher foods are not kosher because they are blessed by a Rabbi. But that hardly matters. This culinary crusade seems to be taking off among the under-seasoned faithful. After all, as said in Matthew 5:13 “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”

  1. Never in my life have I seen something so blatantly unchristian like. Whether you like it or not buddy, the Jews are God’s chosen people and he still loves them.

    In New Zealand we call it rock salt, kosher salt what ever. I’m just blown away that someone could have so little time on their hands that they make Christian salt.

    May I remind you that Jesus himself was a Jew. The good thing is that God has a wonderful sense of humour and probably thinks this is very funny.

    By the way, I hope that you are tything double what you make with your pathetic money spinner.

  2. I’m so glad that I don’t have to buy kosher salt and don’t have to support jewish charities. I’m not jewish. I hate paying a fee to finance the kashruth business.

  3. Patty,

    My question in re soul seasoning would be is it made of souls or used in the preparation of?

  4. Good Grief, these people are the moral equivalent of the money changers in the temple. The first order must be $100. That will buy more than 100 boxes of Morton salt. What rot!

  5. If the salt was ‘Red’ and the Seas parted before before packaging, even the Jews would get on board with a brisket for St. Paddy’s.

    mespo, check out the spice list.I’m curious about ‘Soul Seasoning’.

  6. eniobob,

    Thanks for that link. I only looked at a couple of sections (the buildings shots are quite a collection!), but I’ll have to dig through that some more. Interesting stuff.
