    Default Thanksgiving Tips: Accidently added too much salt to your gr

    Q I went overboard with the salt shaker while making soup (or gravy).
    Is there any way to salvage it?

    A If you have a potato, peel it and throw it into the oversalted soup
    or gravy. Let it simmer for a while, then remove the potato and
    discard. The potato should have absorbed some of the salt. If the soup
    is still too salty, try adding some mushrooms or tomatoes or a little
    milk or cream to neutralize the flavor. Or try squirting in a little
    lemon juice or adding a pinch of sugar to balance.
