Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Over Salting

November 12, 2013

While it is best to taste as you go, sometimes we get a little carried away with the salt shaker. When soups and sauces get too salty, simply drop in a peeled potato, and continue cooking. The potato absorbs the excess salt, essentially drawing it away from the rest of the food. When you are ready to serve the dish, remove the potato and check the seasonings once again.


Dishes which contain potatoes, may need a little extra salt when they are finished, since the potatoes will have soaked it most of what was initially added.
