Hi Everybody, Debbie Benson here...
This is where I can tell you about what I know, what I have found-out, and here I can also rant a bit.
Since I was a little girl I have been aware of sodium, both high and low levels, as you learned in my first Season-It Newsletter 3 Tips That Help A Low Sodium Diet. Starting Benson's Gourmet Seasonings has been a dream come true.
As I learn, and find helpful information, tips, products, recipes and websites, I will share the information with you here. Then, you can follow-up and do your own research and make your own, more informed decisions regarding your health, or the health of a loved one. Knowledge helps you and gives you power to make better decisions.

Those precious little bits add a ton of flavor. Be careful, and don't let them burn. Even if it just starts to burn a little, this may ruin the sauce or gravy as you will pick-up a burnt taste. Unfortunately, there is really not much you can do to fix it. More low sodium cooking tipsLeave a comment...
