Without any influence, I would lean towards the sweet side but having been raised with a mother who loves salt on almost anything it was only natural that I would also develop a healthy affinity towards salt as well. Sources say that there are over 14,000 different uses for salt- it’s pretty amazing all that salt can do! I thought I’d relay a few salty facts:Salt brings out the flavor in food.

  One Comment to “Salt – Part One”

  1. The Pirate Shot, another use for salt:

    1. Snort a thin “line” of salt through half of a straw.

    2. Drink shot of cheap rum or tequila.

    3. Squeeze lemon slice into your eye. Limes or lemon juice from a bottle will also do in a pinch.

    4. Squint and yell “AARRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!”
