Tip of the Day: Saving Oversalted Food

2313836162_7444d0e9a1Everyone has had a disaster in the kitchen at one time or another. Even the most experienced cook can be distracted and add too much salt, forget to set the timer, or omit a crucial ingredient. If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it’s still cooking, you might be able to save it.

If you’re making a soup or sauce, drop in a peeled potato and most of the time it will absorb the excess salt for an instant ‘fix-me-up.’  The downfall is this only works when making something fairly liquidy… So, lesson learned, never measure or pour the salt directly from the container over your cooking dinner pot!

    Great idea.

    The only hint I heard about over salting?
    Double the rest of the recipe. Always works. The question is do you have enough ingredients, sanity or freezer space to double, triple, etc. the recipe?
