I think I did a Stu...

I would miss the salt, couldn't do without the pepper...

(that makes for 5/5 for keep the pepper)

Voted pepper....then forgot about peppered steak!

I only eat salt occasionally - don't use it in cooking except a pinch in bread.

I'd give up salt, proven to be bad for you in any more than small amounts.

Pepper rules

I'd lose pepper for sure. You can get the same kind of spice and bite by using the right raw materials.


Now, who's for grated radish on their Lasagne?

Why mask the taste of food with pepper or too much salt for that matter. Imagine being in the chippy and having pepper and vinegar instead of salt
Sorry, that's just stupid.

Watercress is probably not a bad alternative.
Chop it up nice and fine and add it to the steak just before it's finished cooking and then turn both sides to seal the watercress flavour in.

Or you could just use mace.

I cant believe there are so many folk who donít use salt in cooking

Not even when cooking Pasta? And I am guessing no curries either?

Salt, everyone prefers hot and spicy

Salute, Giordano.

I would give up salt (have never liked it) but for some inexplicable reason I ticked the pepper box above Is there any way I can change my answer?
