For the last few months I have noticed that the food I prepare has tasted strange.
This was particularly evident in a pig’s foot terrine that I cooked last weekend. Each time I tasted it during the very long simmering period, it needed more salt. So I added more salt from the plastic bag of salt that I use for cooking.. When it came to eating it, it tasted very odd and I had to sprinkle even more salt on it from a salt cellar.
Yesterday, I spilled some salt from the bag and instinctively licked it off my hand. It was not salt. It was sugar.
How many bags of sugar have I consumed, thinking it was salt?
Being illiterate does not help with weight loss.
Could have been Epson Salts!
Doesn’t anyone make a translation app like they make plant identifying ones?
I have bought lots of bags of salt and so had great confidence. I actually went back to the shop and the sugar and salt are on the same shelf.
You are not alone! I’ve done that too. The steak tasted very peculiar. Won’t do it again, though.
What astounds me is how long it took me to notice!
