Quick Tip: How to Fix a Dish that is Too Salty

Over seasoned the soup? No a problem! Here are a few quick fixes for overly salty stews, sauces and everything else.

Add some starch: Drop a half of an uncooked potato into your salty pasta sauce and say goodbye to over-seasoned sauce!

Dilute the soup: Add a little more water to your soups and stocks to help even out the salt content. Add about ½ cup at a time to keep from over watering.

Add Some Sugar: Adding a little brown sugar to your meat dish will help to balance out the salt. Try adding it 1 teaspoon at a time, so you don’t end up with an overly sweet dish!

Make a double batch: Think you can’t save it? Add some more veggies, stock, or whatever components you have to make a double batch. Just don’t add the salt this time!
