Over-salted Sauce?

Super quick tip today…

If, like me, you make your own pizza sauce, taco sauce, soup, etc, there may come a time when you taste it and realize you were a little heavy-handed with the salt. Not too worry; all is not lost.

Simply place a cut apple or potato into the pot, stir, and let it simmer in there for 15-20 minutes. The starchiness will absorb much of the excess salt making it more palatable! But you’ll probably want to toss the apple/potato… it will be pretty gross.

(On a related note, putting a whole, peeled carrot into a tomato based sauce while it simmers will absorb excess acid resulting in a sweeter sauce.)
