Re: Supermarket bacon rant.
Salt, brine is obviously used as a preservative, but I find it unimaginable that the food companies think that their product is going to sit on the shelves for years. I don't eat a lot of soup because of the amount of sodium in the can. If this soup is going to sit that long on the shelf change your recipe so that people like it and will buy it. We are given salt at an early age and then feel without it there is no taste. I have no salt in my house. If it needs salt for flavor then I don't want it. But remember that the true test of manhood is frying bacon without a shirt.
