I love a good deal, don't you?
Quite often, we frequent a store that has many name brand items at discount prices. Clothes, food, furniture, knickknacks ...... they have it all.
On one occasion Teresa picked up this wonderful "pink salt". I mean, who doesn't like good salt, right? We love to cook, and we don't scrimp on the salt.
I soon discovered why this salt was on the discount shelf. Evidently someone in Pakistan, where it was bottled, didn't correctly clean the storage tanks from the previous item. Which in this case was hot peppers.
I was quite surprised as I tasted my nicely cooked meal, thinking it was seasoned perfectly, to find my mouth on fire.
Yep, the salt was the culprit. It was tainted. Little hot peppers mixed in with that wonderful salt.
For me and my taste buds, rather useless. Kinda good for nothing. If I was salt, I would want to be good salt.
"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
