How do you know how much salt to add?

MMRuth | Sep 14, 2007 07:16 AM

So many recipes call for adding "salt to taste", and I often find that I don't add enough. For example, last night I made lamb kofte, using 1.25 pounds of lamb, and they were decidedly undersalted - but of course I don't know how much I added - maybe a large pinch. I'm going to try to be more rigorous about measuring how much I add and then noting the results, but are there any guidelines out there for how much salt to add to a dish?

(I've come to live with the fact that my husband adds salt to almost everything I cook, even things that I think are slightly salty.)
