  • Too salty... is there a fix??

    I made some homemade tomato soup last night and put too much salt in it... is there a fix?

    Toss a half a raw potato in there then bring it to a boil. The potato will absorb alot of the salt, just pluck it out and pitch it before you eat.

      Soup too salty? Throw a cut-up potato in. The potato will act like a sponge and soak up the salt. Throw the potato away before serving. Soup still too salty? Sometimes a little lemon juice or vinegar will counter the salt.

        I was gonna say that!!!!!!



        Also - after taking out the salt-soaked potato - add 1 tsp sugar.

        You won't notice it with the natural sweetness of the tomatoes, but it will counteract the saltiness as well. (Of course you can't do that with all soups, just certain ones.)

          I've tried the potato thing and it doesn't seem to work for me.

            Didnt work for me either, but, its not going to hurt to try! I made Bean Soup, added the Ham Juice after baking a ham, and like a dummy, added salt out of habit. So maybe my soup overdosed

                The potato has to be peeled.
