Added too much salt to your soup, stew, or sauce? No problem!
It's an old myth that adding a peeled potato to the soup or sauce will absorb the salt in a dish. Although it may draw some salt out, it is better to add a little sugar or acid, such as a lemon juice, and taste as you go.
Another option is to add more water and dilute the dish if it is a soup or stew.
Look at that mess! Now I need to throw some salt over my shoulder;)
