Ellie, if the author doesn’t mention, then it should be just regular table salt.

Easy to follow recipe 🙂 I made about three weeks ago and totally forgot about them. They've been sat marinating in their jars for around 3 weeks, unrefrigerated. Will they be safe to eat?

Yes, they should be fine if the jars were tightly sealed. Try a few first, however once you open a jar, keep it refrigerated for up to 5 days only.

I live in Montreal. Where can I get these beans dry? I've been to Portuguese stores but they only have them already made in jars.
