Old Man River – No Salt Grinder Blend


No Salt!  Great Taste!


This blend was designed for an non-profit orgination know as Mission: Hope, formerly Rivers of the World. It helps less fortunate people living in villages located in third world countries around the world.

We named this salt free blend after our friend, the founder, who calls himself the “old man.” He wanted to decrease his salt intake and still bring out the best flavor in his favorite dishes.

We took the challenge and designed this blend to burst with flavor and also added a grinder top instead of a shaker top. That makes a real difference!

So, enjoy your favorites salt free and guilt free!!!


Ingredients: Old Man River No Salt Blendsm is a proprietary blend of minced onion, black peppercorns, minced garlic, chive, shallot, green onion and oregano


Pork Chops, Apples and Sauerkraut with Old Man River Blend

Recipe by Damon Lee Fowler, featuring

Salt Table Old Man River Blend

Salt Table’s Old Man River Seasoning Blend was designed for customers who were looking for a salt-free seasoning, but it’s great for seasoning dozens of savory dishes even when you’re not watching the sodium. It’s an especially good seasoning for these chops, since two of the key ingredients—bacon and sauerkraut—are already salty.

This recipe serves two and is perfect for an intimate fall dinner, but it doubles easily if you have a larger family.


Serves 2

  • 2 1-inch-thick center-cut pork loin chops
  • Salt Table Fine Sea Salt or Fine Himalayan Pink Salt
  • Salt Table Old Man River Seasoning Blend
  • 1 extra-thick-cut slice applewood or hickory smoked bacon, diced
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium tart apple such as Granny Smith, washed, cored, (peeled if preferred), and diced
  • 1½ cups sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 1 level tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup Auslese Riesling wine
  1. Position a rack in center of the oven and preheat to 350° F. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels and season with salt and Old Man River Blend. Sauté the bacon in flame-proof casserole (such as an enameled iron Dutch oven or braiser) over medium heat until golden brown. Remove it with a slotted spoon and drain it on absorbent paper. Add the chops to pan and brown them well on both sides. Remove them from pan and spoon off most of fat.
  2. Add the onion to pan and sauté until translucent and golden, about 5 minutes. Add the apples and toss until they’re hot through. Pour in the wine, stirring and scraping pan to loosen cooking residue, then mix in the kraut, brown sugar, mustard, and reserved bacon. Season well with Old Man River Blend, stir, and level the top with spatula.
  3. Lay the pork chops on top the kraut, cover tightly, and bake in center of the oven until the chops are cooked through and tender, about 1 hour.
