Time Out (Alex)

Want your watermelon to taste sweeter?

Sprinkle some salt on it.

  Time Out (Alex) Replied:

Ok, I need to know is this true? Who has tried this or is willing to try? Very curious!

I don't like watermelon, or else I would try it.

  kc Replied:

Not sure I would want to chance it. Love watermelon.

  Lyn Replied:

I have always heard this but am not willing to try it. LOL

  Jeanne- CE! Replied:

I just so happened to be eating watermelon when I logged in. I have never salted my melon, but today I took one for the team and tried it. Bleck! LOL

  Lyn Replied:

You are so brave. LOL

  Time Out (Alex) Replied:

Jeanne, you are my hero! Good job stepping out of the comfort zone.

So, I'm going to translate "Bleck" = Boys & Girls don't try this at home!

  Karen Replied:

We ate salt on watermelon, cantaloupe and such growing up. Never thought about why, it just didn't taste right without it. I don't have to take meds or anything, but I do watch salt consumption. I don't think there's any reason anyone should think it makes it sweeter. For sure, it just adds more sodium to your intake.

  cheryl Replied:

I dont know how it could make it sweeter.

  Lyn Replied:

I know in baking they say salt brings out the sweet in things, I guess it is the same concept?
