In Response to Re: Getting rid of too much salt:
He is still eating it. I am going to push for carrying the rest to where we go this weekend. Whatever is left, I will find a way to toss out. I agree too much salt is to be avoided. But part of the problem was the meat was too salty from the beginning. Though I can't say that he did not add more.

Pat, We have all made these mistakes.I remember 32 years ago when my husband and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving and he invited his whole family for dinner.I was twenty two and had always helped my Mom in the kitchen but had never made a turkey on my own.Everything was under control until I tasted my stuffing that was in the bird and it was only half way through cooking,it was way too salty and I ended up unstuffing the turkey and restuffing it with all new stuffing.Needless to say I was freaking out.Everyone had eaten and enjoyed the meal.The following day My dear Mom in law was bragging what a great cook I was! I pulled that one off my the skin of my teeth! My Mom always told me to error on the side of not salty enough rather than too salty.You can always add more salt but you can't take it out.After all of this I learned a lesson and so did my husband to always ask me before he invites people over for dinner.
