New guidelines just announced say that Americans need to cut their salt intake.
Wow, that’s a news flash.
But they say that Americans over the age of 51 and all African-Americans should limit their salt intake to 1/2 a teaspoon daily.
That is not a lot of salt!
but have you ever added too much salt to a dish like soup or stew?
Want to make it less salty?
Peel a potato, cut it into large chunks and toss it into the stew the last 10 minutes of cooking. This will pull out some of the salt from your soup. Remove the potato and serve.
