Hello Robin Patterson, The only way you could "save" your dish is by making more picadillo without spices, then combining it with the very salty portion. This way, you can dilute the spices. Thanks' for visiting our web site, here at Paula's we encourage you to keep on trying our recipes!

I made picadillo last nite and added to many "salty" spices. How can I correct that so it's more edible! Thank you!

Hola, Like this, but sorry to tell you that it does not work. It's an old, old kitchen tip ( my mother taught me too) but Good Housekeeping magazine tested it some time back and it does not help. The potato does not really "soak" up the salt. The only way to save the soup is to dilute it with stock or add a pinch of sugar to help counteract the salt. Sorry!! Hey, Maybe y'all could test it for us? Love the site, Adios, JD

When you put the potatoes into a over salted dish or soup How does it work? You Didn't explain why we need to do this or if there was anything else we can do if we don't have a potato.

I was wandering if you have any ideas for using the potato after it has done it's job on the salt, can it be used in another dish?

Ive tried that potatoe trick before to remove salt but it never seemed to work that good for me. Maybe because I always cut the potatoe into chunks...hummm. Thanks for the tip anyway.

Hi! I would love to know how to save an over salted dish, but my iPad doesn't have a flash player (some corporate squabble with Apple). Is there another way to learn about this? Thanks!
