Because... why not? Salt is one of the most basic seasoning, and people of URW eat their food quite bland.
Like sorrel, salt should increases appetite when added to foods while cooking.

From what I've read, salt was actually used more sparingly in this era and predominantly as a preservative due to how expensive it was to obtain without modern mass production methods. Sour flavors from various fermentation methods (also used to preserve foods) were more common than salty flavored foods.

At current food cooking ratios, even 0.1 lb of salt added to a recipe would be a huge amount!

Back then the salt was used foremostly for preservation. The food was seasoned with herbs instead. It’s far later habit to add salt to everything as seasoning.
