Salt Shopping Tip

Salt enhances food by adding depth and accentuating existing flavors. Be sure to have a couple types in your cupboards. Regular iodized salt for the table is typical; sea salt is also a great investment.

Salt Cooking Tip

Bland food is never good. Be sure to season every layer of your food while cooking.
