When I think about spices, I think about things like oregano, cumin, anise, rosemary and the like. How about you? Do you consider salt a spice? It’s in virtually every recipe you come across.
In our house, we just have basic, basic, BASIC cable. Just the 3 main networks, PBS, shopping channels, and a few other channels. We don’t get channels like TNT, HGTV, or the channel I’d love to get….The Food Network. One of my all-time favorite cooking shows is Alton Brown’s, “Good Eats”. I just low how he combines science with cooking.
Well, a couple of years ago, I picked up some “Good Eats” DVDs and you know what? There was an episode dedicated to salt. Alton Brown referred to salt as a spice. It was so interesting. Too bad I can’t sent the DVD out to each and every one of you. Oh, but wait, I can! How? I just found it on YouTube. Check it out.
After watching this show, I gained a new respect for salt in my spice cabinet. How about you?
