Some things need to have salt as they cook or they will not taste as good.
Potatoes need to absorb salt as well as pasta so they need to have salt during cooking them. Potatoes especially. The saying is that you cannot get salt into a potato after it is cookes. Food is supposed to be correctly seasoned before it is served--unless someone is on a salt restricted diet.
A new thing I learned from the book is to add salt to your scrambled eggs and let it sit for 15 minutes before cooking them--for scrambled eggs, quiches and etc. There is a reaction between the salt and egg proteins that helps the eggs to stay together.
I plan on trying this when I cook eggs this weekend for breakfast.

Yes! Over saltin is bad too.
My Dad worked in a lumber mill out of high school and they gave them salt pills!
Salt is controversial but there are bad problems with not getting enough of it. If we cook most of our meals at home and from scratch we run the risk of not getting enough salt.
I think you have the answer...duh, wish I had realized that with the first one.
Somewhere I read sweet and salty or sweet and sour/tart are complimentary and boost the flavor.
So, when I bake the other one, planning to divide portions on a plate and Experiment . Honestly this recipe has great promise, just some tweaking.
Lol yeah i cook with salt with potatoes corn and other things but i refuse on things like hamburgers or my scrambled eggs those my dad ruined on a regular baises thats probalby my issue, and my dad took salt pills as well 😰shudders. He still is a salt freak not nearly as bad but he still does construction but his meat actaully has color now days lol.
Eggs can accept salt or pepper added. I know what you mean though, a friend makes the best deviled eggs, but her DH helps and over salts - you cannot remove it after adding too, too much.
But IMO hamburger meat needs salt or it is too bland.

That's interesting @ronott1. I've always put some salt in when I've beat the eggs, guess I should be doing it earlier. Thanks!
