Add Potato to Absorb Excess Salt

Chunks of potato added to cooked squash.I was cooking squash and after tasting it, I discovered that I had added way too much salt. I had heard that you could add a potato to soup when it's over salted so I tried it in the squash. I cut the potato in quarters and put in the pan with the squash and let it cook until the squash was tender. I removed the potato to add sugar to the squash and brown it.


While the squash finished cooking, I ate the potato and it was good. The squash turned out good too. The potato absorbed the extra salt and made it just right.

I had never cooked potatoes in squash before but I believe that would be quite tasty served together. I'll have to try it and not brown the squash.

Dice the potatoes small and fry them with the squash. This is really good.
