"Let's Get Salty . . . "

Scot Meacham Wood Home just received some new salt and pepper shakers! Unpacking them made us remember the different myths we had heard about salt and pepper. So we did a little shaking around and found some interesting ideas about this spice etiquette. Here are a few that we came across. 
Bon Appetit! 

1. Always pass the salt and pepper together.
Even if the person only asks for one, you should always pass both. Think of it as the salt and pepper shakers being married. Let's not create a shake up between them.
2. Taste your food first.

You may want to taste the food first before deciding if it needs salt or pepper. Some chefs might be offended if you assume they didn't season their food well enough. The last thing we need is a salty chef. 
3.  Spilled salt.
The Last Supper has revealed to us two trivial superstitions: first, you should never seat 13 at dinner and second, that spilling salt brings bad luck. Because of Judas Iscariot, spilled salt is identified with betrayal and lies. If you happen to spill salt or pepper, a pinch thrown over your left shoulder is supposed to blind the devil waiting behind you.
