Salt iodised or common

Recipe says to use common salt - can I use table (iodised) salt for preserving beetroot?

Of course!

Yay thanks ! Beetroot (from my garden - yum) all cooked and ready for the next step. :)

I used to wonder the same thing. Read this week that the iodised salt causes the food to discolour. So went out and bought plain salt.

It's best to use plain salt with no additives at all. Iodised salt may discolour the pickle, which doesn't matter much with beetroot, but the usual anti-caking additives will affect the flavour and texture.

I've never seen salt called common salt - only iodised or table salt
