I like to try some different herbs and spices and like to linger over the spice section at the supermarket. I remember mrs dash from long ago. Recently I observed that they are now like the Crest toothpaste company, where they used to have one product that was trusted and popular. Now they have all kinds of variants on toothpaste, like whitening and gel etc,. Too confusing so I quit buying Crest. Same with mrs dash. They have a lot of different products with the mrs dash branding. I also had that experience with V8 juice recently. There's got to be ten different kinds of it now, and I had a hard time figuring out which one was "good ol v8". They call it "original", but the packages all look alike.

Makes for a pretty easy choice.

Certain ham's are very salty and probably should not be used for sandwiches without a desalting soak. Places that sell these hams whole tell you they must be soaked.
I have never found an restaurant that has exceedingly salty food that I can recollect but I have noticed some bags of chips and corn chips are exceedingly salty even to me.
I have fund that sometimes I find the food when eating out horridly lacking in salt but it is better to have to add as you cannot remove.

Salt is a cheap way to get food to taste better (to some). However, my comeback to all the pre-salted foods is that the plant used to remove salt from food only works on liquid, the final product is water and it usually cost a few million. The item used to put salt into or onto food cost 57 cents at Fred's.

Salt is used way less that it was in days past as they used it as their only chemical food preservative. If you look at canning or food storing recipes of generations past, there is an unbelievable amount of salt in there.

That's true, things like salt pork and salt cured bacon have tons of salt in them.

True.. This is some of the most misunderstood seasoning around. Mostly because most think that since it was brought out as a salt substitute it cannot be used with salt. I use it on baked chicken all the time and on baked potato rounds that I sprinkle with a salt substitute afterwards. Great stuff with or without salt.

Conan, since I know you're a music geek here's a salty song for you:

The band is an obscure 60's rock band from Massachusetts named Lazy Smoke, they only pressed about 500 copies of this album so it goes for big money on the collector's market. The singer sounds exactly like John Lennon. The guitarist still plays locally to this day in the New England area.

The guitarist was also in this band called Euclid with a good friend of my father, they cut this album in 1970. My father's friend Gary was the singer. I have a beat up copy of the album that my parents played to death when I was a kid:

The guitarist was later in a band with the guy who taught me how to play bass, I don't think they ever recorded though.

Thanks. I'll check them out when I get to a place where I can watch videos.


I like the album picture, but my favorite album cover is:

Although this one is very good too:

But there are lots of others that are fun.
