One thing I do when Iím out is I pour the salt in my hand and use the other hand to ďpinchĒ the amount to use. So I know how much Iím actually adding. Youíll find a spot for the leftover salt somewhere on the table.

I donít use a salt shaker at home, I use a salt dish.

It is very easy to color salt. I used to do crafts with children and pictures with salt in different colors make a really good craft when they are sprinkled on glue.

Just add food coloring drops to your salt and dry. You will probably need to put a few grains of rice in the salt shaker, because the food coloring may make some of it stick together.

We use Kosher salt in a covered dish (salt cellar) at home. It's not as salty and is great for cooking. Also, what size pinch of salt you need is easy to determine.

Skip the salt altogether.

I do. Lots of fresh black pepper instead. Yum.

That is... until it comes to salting something! I can never judge anymore if I have enough salt or not by just shaking the salt shaker! Because, you see, I can't see it when it's coming out! It's always too little or too much... nothing "just right" like Goldilocks found! And, I be darn if I'm putting on my glasses in a restaurant just to salt something 'cause I surely can't eat with them on.

Whew, there, I said it! 'Tis heck getting older! Now, pepper, I have no problem with, because it has color. So, I've concluded what is needed here is colored salt! I mean, they do make colored sugar, so why not?

Help!!! Anyone with me? Any ideas? And, what color shall it be? Any other food item you'd like to see changed?

I can get colord salt at my local market but I have never bought any because I just don't use salt much.
