Fixing too salty or too sugary food
All of us can remember a time when we needed some tips for fixing too salty or too sugary food: If you mistakenly added too much salt or sugar to a recipe, you cannot undo it and take it out. You already know that!
But one way to fix your problem is to add more of the ingredients in that particular recipe without adding more of the salt or sugar.
You will, of course, end up with a lot more food. You might like that. You could have leftovers, which would mean tomorrow's lunch or dinner is already planned. Or maybe this is a recipe that can be frozen for another time.
However, you may choose to not have so much extra food. You will need tips for fixing too salty or too sugary food.
If you mistakenly added too much salt to a recipe, add a small amount of white distilled vinegar.
You can also try adding a teaspoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of sugar to cut the salt.

If you have mistakenly added too much sugar to a cooked meal, add a teaspoon of apple cider OR white distilled vinegar. It will reduce the sweetness.
