Salted Boiling Water - What Does It Mean?

Recipe by GypsyWinds
READY IN: 24mins
YIELD: 4 cups




  • Measure water into a pan that has a tight fitting lid, cover and turn on high.
  • When water begins to boil - add salt, cover and return lid giving just a moment or two to return to a full rolling boil.
  • Proceed with whatever recipe you have that says cook in "boiling salted water".
  • Adjust water amounts according to amount of your recipe yield, keeping the water/salt ratio of 1 tsp salt to 1 cup water.
  • TIPS:
  • Placing a lid on pan will help water to boil faster.
  • ALWAYS add salt AFTER the water is boiling to prevent "pitting" of your pans, which can ruin a pan forever.
  • NOTE:
  • After reading my first review,.
  • I do want to explain I am NOT in ANYWAY picking fun at new cooks, everyone starts somewhere. The humor I found in the recipe listing at another site is the reviews so many people wrote in reply to reading the recipe. 736 reviews! Almost 90% are written in a good cooks humor. When I was done reading all I could handle, my sides ached, my cheeks were wet with tears of insane laughter, and I had called long distance to 2 sisters, making them listen! At the risk of being hit by the large Zaar spoon, I will just say the other recipe site starts with an E. (Please note: that is the only recipe I suggest for reading there! And 'Zaar is the ONLY www. site that I have a paid membership!) :).
