Does the potato trick work effectively? Sure, I used it and created a
few very salty potatoes, but are there any better remedies for acute
over salting?

No. It doesn't. The potato absorbs a little water and carries however
much salt is dissolved in just that amount of water into itself.

Sure, I used it and created a few very salty potatoes,


I'm afraid I don't believe you.

but are there
any better remedies for acute over salting?


Dilution. Period.

That's just plain mean. She asked an honest question and prefaced it
with the reason why she needs to ask it.

SHE OPENED the door and asked the question. Moral of the
story....never ask a question that you don't want to hear the answer
to. Yes...the truth can be painful at times.

Take an honest look at the subject line....just endless blather when a
four word subject line would be more appropriate.

A *rhetorical* question, it's this new thing. Just poking a little

Like, how stupid am I to be reading this? No, don't answer that. It's a
rhetorical question. :-)

At this end of the globe a she Peter is a Peta. YMMV.

(But a he Peter would explain a lot of this incompetence -- take that
"chatting" with a bottle of red and salt in the sauce is probably
inevitable. ;-)

If a certain liquid was consumed during the cooking period... so what?
Why pick on her? It's not an unusual situation.

Before you fire off a smart-arse reply to a post, Ward, you might want
to check your own reading ability. Do you see a question in the OP's
first paragraph? No, it's a statement - "How stupid I was...".

That you would take the effort to write a pompous, arrogant and "just
plain mean" response but not take the effort to read the OP carefully
first tells us a hell of a lot about you, namely, that you're pompous,
arrogant and "just plain mean."

Have a nice day.

I was going to reply, but I'm afraid I'll be wholly misconstrued
again.

You were replying to her posting style, not the query. This is, after
all, a cooking newsgroup, and questions about cooking are part of this
community's posts. You replied, quite unpleasantly:

Were you expecting a random Usenet reader to interpret your ineptness?


Yes, up to a point, she *was* "expecting a random Usenet reader" to
reply to her question about accidental over-salting, which I believe
we all have done at one time or another, and has nothing to do with
"ineptness" and everything to do with inattention or carelessness.

Take an honest look at the subject line....just endless blather when a
four word subject line would be more appropriate.


You are complaining about a *header*??? So what? You really need to
up your meds if this is the sort of thing that aggravates you, aulde
son.

A teaspoon of salt doesn't really sound like that much - how much sauce
did you dump it into? You didn't say. A heaped tablespoon is another
matter altogether. Just eat it, it won't be that bad. Or are you just
trolling...
