If you make soup and it comes out too sweet, just add a little salt or a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to it.

I made homemade tomato soup as I can't have salt. It tastes really good, but is a bit too sweet. Vinegar sounded like only thing I could use, but pickle juice is full of sodium.

It was a little thin so I put in a little mashed potato flakes. I used half and half to make it a bit creamier, but help! It's still too sweet. Thanks.

You don't have to use pickle juice if you need vinegar. Just use vinegar. Plain cider vinegar.

To cut the sweet taste I always use baking soda. Just a pinch though otherwise it will become bland. Works great if you're making spaghetti sauce also.

Lemon and/or lime juice would probably do the trick, too.

Be sure you're not using canned tomatoes with added sugar.

I made some beef soup and one of the ingredients I used was very sweet. I would like to know how can I take the sweetness out?

This happened to me just this week (soup was too salty). what worked well for me was straining about 1/2 of the liquid and replacing it with water. it sounds kind of wasteful to drain off the broth, but it's a whole lot wasteful than not being able to eat the food.

Add some white potatoes or instant potatoes to it, good luck.

Too many onions or carrots will make it taste sweet.

Put some canned tomatoes or tomatoe paste in and cook a little more.

I like your answer better, thanks, that's what I had to do was to drain some of the liquid and add more.

I made a pot of vegetable soup using soup bones, carrots, potatos, okra, and onion. The spices were two bay leaves, a teaspoon of thyme, a tablespoon of chili powder, a tablespoon of salt, about a teaspoon of pepper, and a couple of squirts of Worcestershire sauce. I also added a can of diced tomatoes but didn't notice until after the fact that they were fire roasted tomatoes. The soup has a sweet taste that is weird and I'd like to get rid of it. Any suggestions?
