Truth in labeling <a rant>


Some years ago, well more than some, my daughter gave us a packet of pink salt in a cooking basket. Never got got around to using it. Took it out of the pantry and it said best xx, 2008.


This stuff is 10 million years old. How the hell could it be best 2008??????


Made a really good great dish using it. Will try to post a recipe on Saturday.

Talk to your Federal Government. They are the ones requiring such labeling without consideration to what is being labeled. Salt doesn't go bad, sugar neither, might clump but hit it with your fist or a hammer or drop into a blender.

My favorite is "sea salt."

ALL salt comes from the sea. You can pay extra to buy the stuff they've extracted from today's polluted waters, OR you can buy the cheaper stuff that settled out naturally, millions of years ago, before pollution.

Your choice.

I think it is more correct to say all salt 'came' from the sea. Terminal lakes like Great Salt Lake get their salinity from mineral salts washed down from the rivers feeding it.

Don't drink one that has frozen, then thawed.

I learned that in another life, when I was much much younger.

Like MTN beer has never been a problem.


The no sugar drinks do go 'off taste' after a bit and heat makes it worse.


Pink salt. Salt contaminated with iron oxide. Oh well I guess yuppies would not rusty salt.

I've seen similar videos to this before.

Re: Truth in labeling <a rant>


Truth in labeling, accept truth or not.

I mean, is there a proposal to scrap labeling laws?

Hope not. @Colbyt , your point is well-taken, but . . .

Re: Truth in labeling <a rant>


There is another side to "truth" in the labeling scenario. Meats and fish are often deceptively labeled. No country of origin listed. Most of the chicken we eat is sent to China for processing, then shipped back to us for consumption. Do you trust China with your food? What possible economic value could doing that have to our economy or your bottom line at the check out stand?

I had a rack and a half of leftover expensive craft beer that was well past its best-by date, out in the garage. One of my kids left it.

Me, I prefer the cheap stuff. Honest. I have an uneducated beer-palate, and I want to keep it ignorant. It's cheaper that way. MGD quenches my thirst just fine, and it tastes good...to me. Not too cold, maybe 45 or 50 degrees.

Anyway...back to my expired craft beer. What to do?

...I just threw it away, poured it down a hole. Took me more that a week, but I got it done. From what I can recall, that was a pretty good week.
