Question by Sam on 13 August 2015
I added too much salt (or spice) to my dish. How do I save it?
Add coconut oil about 10ml
Add some vinegar
add a peeled whole potatoe. this will absorb most of the salt.
To a very spicy dish you can add yoghurt or cream. I find that potatoes or gem squash can absorb the salt.
Add a proportionate amount of lemon juice
I have heard that adding a whole raw potato absorbs salt, then remove when done. If you are making a sauce, I would remove a third of the salty sauce, discard then add to the remainder some of the stated base(water, cream) and some thickener (egg yolk/ cornflour or flour) ingredients. Hope that helps.
