"I love the acidity of fried tomatoes, and the juicy crunch. Wish I were having them for lunch."

The title is a lovely rhyming quote from Ruhlman.com, food blogger. He has this to say about salt. And just as importantly, answering the sort of question asked by people who don’t seem to know how to think naturally.

“The fact is, we have struggled to make our food so inexpensive that we’ve basically decided to grow cardboard, which, if you’ve ever tasted it, requires plenty of salt, especially if you intend to serve it to guests. Why do you think food is so cheap? Because there’s nothing of value in it! Including flavor. Thus, the salt.”

…and one more thought of note…

“My belief is this: if you eat natural foods, you don’t need to worry about salt. Period.”
