Response to Deprivation

Question: On the extremely important issue that in many places in our country we can no longer find salt, and it is impossible to know what tomorrow will bring, how should we act in the cooking of meat?

Answer: It is permitted to prepare the meat by means of roasting, but only in preparation for the Sabbath and holidays.

Note: The halachically required removal of blood from meat prior to cooking is accomplished by means of salting and rinsing the meat. According to the law, it is permitted to prepare meat by roasting it, even without salt, but the widespread custom is to salt even meat that will be roasted, such as the liver (see Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh Deah, section 67:3). The question here is whether it is permitted to prepare meat to be kosher in some other fashion if there is no salt.
