Don’t throw away the dish!


Sometimes a recipe can’t be saved, but if you have slaved over the stove and got a little heavy handed with the salt, you can try some kitchen CPR before tossing all of your hard work and ingredients.


Here are a few over salting remedies to try:


For a soup, dillute with unsalted liquid or add a peeled and quartered potato for a minimum or 15 minutes. Remove potato prior to serving.


For over salted soups or sauces, a little sour cream, brown sugar or vinegar can help balance the saltiness. Use your best judgement based on the flavor of the sauce and start with a small amount and add more as needed.


Try adding cooked white rice pureed with some water to over salted soups or stews to absorb
