When to Add to Cooking:
To blend with soups and sauces, put it in early.
For meats, add it just before taking from the stove.
In cake ingredients, salt can be mixed with eggs.
When cooking vegetables, always salt the water in which they are cooked in.
Put salt in the pan when frying fish to prevent sticking and control odor.
For quick and handy seasoning while cooking, keep on hand a large shaker containing six parts salt and one part pepper.
Lemon juice or vinegar may replace salt in most recipes for the low sodium or salt-free diet.
Other Uses for Salt:
Salt sprinkled on waxed paper will remove burned-on starch from a hot iron. Just iron over it awhile.
Dip a new broom in hot salt water before using to toughen bristles and extend their life.

Polish copper and pewter with mixture of one cup vinegar, 1 tsp. salt and enough flour to make a paste. Apply to pots and other items, then rinse with warm water and dry completely.
