Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
I saw my momma use this trick many times over the years:
If you accidentally add too much salt to a cooking pot, add a peeled potato and continue to cook a bit. Discard potato and serve dish as usual. Potatoes are salt-sponges. They will absorb most, if not all, of the excess salt.
Do you ever have trouble getting your mashed potatoes salty enough? Add the salt to the water when your boiling the potatoes. Again, the potatoes will absorb the salt. No more having to “test taste” and add salt while mashing your potatoes! Hmmm? Is that good, or not?!
