I have a fondant recipe that calls for fine salt. Does that mean standard table salt or popcorn salt? This is the recipe:

1 cup of shortening or butter
1 cup of clear corn syrup
½ tsp fine salt
1 tsp clear vanilla extract
½ tsp any flavoring
2lbs of powdered sugar

Thoughts?

I use popcorn salt. It is super fine and dissolved really well so that the frosting is not gritty. Mix the salt in the extracts to help it get started dissolving.

Fine salt has a smaller grain than table salt. It's hard to find, so I use popcorn salt too.

Thanks. I just wanted to double check before I got started on it. I'd hate to make it and have it either too gritty or too salty.
