This may be the thread you were looking for:
I think 2 tsp. salt is an awful lot in the recipe stated above.....I can't find my recipe but I don't think Sharon even has salt listed as one of her ingredients. However, I DO prefer the flavor WITH salt as opposed to without.
For the 4.5 recipe I use 3/4 tsp. and that is plenty enough. I tried a full tsp. once and it was just too salty. Everyone that taste tested agreed, so I've cut it back to 3/4 tsp. Remember, you can always add more but you can't take it away. Also, make sure to dissolve it in your hot liquid mixture first otherwise it will be grainy and there WILL be bites where you're certain you're crunching on salt!
