Season to Taste

What does "season to taste" really mean at the end of a recipe? Salt can turn a bland dish into a delicious one! You do not add salt to make the dish "more salty", but instead salt acts to 1.) Reduce bitterness 2.) Enhance the other flavors present in the dish I encourage you to taste your food before you take it to the table. 

This last step will definitely improve your finished product. What salt do I use? you ask... For this finishing step, I recommend Kosher salt. Start with a "three finger" pinch of salt added to your dish and then taste it. This adds about 1/2 TSP. And remember, salt enhances flavor, while pepper changes the flavor. So add additional pepper sparingly.
