too much celery salt !

Postby PatsyMFagan » February 11th, 2019, 8:49 pm

:oops: I made a big pot of potato, leek and onion soup, with watercress but have spoilt it by the addition of too much celery salt. I have never used it before and didn't realise how strong the taste is :(

Anything I can do to repair the damage ? :cry:

Is it too salty, too celeryish or both? I think usually, the best thing is to make more, without flavouring, and add it gradually until it tastes alright. Hopefully there's enough freezer space to be able to do so! Otherwise maybe serve with a generous swirl of cream.

other than adding more potato to mop up the salt maybe just freeze it in small portions and add it into other soups when you make them - like wot em said.

Definitely don’t throw it away. As has been said add it to another unseasoned batch. You may even find the saltiness mellows anyway. It sounds delicious by the way. I love celery salt

Threw my last jar of celery salt out after about 10 years; I did use it, but in homeopathic doses

That's a good tip ! :tu: ;)

And for the others :tu: ... it's not too salty, just to much taste of celery, in fact it overpowers the other veg . :sprout:

Yes - making another (saltless) batch is the only way out. Freeze the excess - or give it to your tiler 8-) 8-)

The tiler went home yesterday with a double portion. A friend has taken a portion to sample.

I have thrown the remains of a carton of passata in with the rest .. and to my portion today for lunch I have added a teaspoon of HM chilli jam ;) That's better :tu:
