a rant about some recipes

Howard_2 | Apr 23, 2012 05:25 AM

I was leafing through a spice catalog I received (from a company that shall remain nameless). There was a recipe for chicken skewers with sauce.

The recipe includes these ingredients (exact quote):

3 T soy sauce (we used reduced sodium)
1/2 C hoisin sauce (...lower sodium if you can find it)
1/4 t powdered ginger

I have 2 observations about these ingredients:

1. This recipe produces 12 skewers. So how much sodium per serving does the recipe creator think will be saved?

2. Only 1/4 t ginger? What is the recipe creator afraid of, that people will actually get a taste or hint of ginger?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
