Saltier than salt: fresh onion powder and lime juice powder combo

Hi readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read.

Back when they were doing the oceans things would have gone a lot different if they’d invented onions and limes by then.  Human beings would never have had to go through the old fashioned outdated  phase of seasoning their food with sodium salt, for instance.

If you run your mental tongue around the flavor of sodium salt and ask yourself, “How could this flavor be duplicated, but improved?  How could the taste of salt, fairly boring and common, be given some class for the discriminating eater?”

Any cave man could have told you the answer if he’d known it, which he didn’t.  So far as anyone knows cave men didn’t have access to the Internet and powdered lime juice, and fresh onion powder.

If two grams of sodium salt represents a maximum healthy amount we can ingest even when we have strong upbeat hearts, getting down to that is a slippery trick.  Mightn’t be possible if we don’t do our own cooking.  But even if we do it isn’t easy.

Or wasn’t easy until fresh onion powder and lime juice powder were invented.   I’m shocked I haven’t read about this anywhere before.  It would have been one hell of a lot easier and quicker if I hadn’t had to discover it on my own through experimentation.

Let me know what you think of it if you try it.

Also, put a bit of onion powder and lime juice powder on a makeup mirror and scrape it into little rows.  Use a soda straw or a rolled up $100 bill and snort it into your nose.  I haven’t tried that, but it might be a memorable experience.

Good luck with that.
