Every restaurant does this when they leave their guacamole in the cooler- even Chipotle.

A simple research of functionality of salt would have sufficed for Epicurious (I hope I spelling it right) not to include that bit. Salt has more to do with awaking appetite of a person (smell). That’s why in many instances it is best added almost at the end of the cooking process. In some cases salt also hardens the meats of added to early. Of course many recipes call for the salt (especially marinades) to be added in the beginning. However, there is no rule that states food will not taste good if salt is added at the end.

Cheryl Taylor Riggs said on October 11, 2017 Reply #12 seriously! “I made this exactly…. except I didn’t” 1 ⭐️ Emily Gardina said on October 11, 2017 Reply Re:#10 That is going to depend on what you are cooking. Certain spices go rancid if cooked for too long or at too high a temperature and salt behaves differently depending on the cooking treatment. In soups, stews, and sauces the salt taste disipates as it cooks and you can wind up adding far more salt than you need/want if you start adding it too early. Grilled, roasted, or sauteed, season early for best result. Jill Morton said on October 11, 2017 Reply Lots of good commonsense info!

The key is to stir them in 30 second intervals and they don’t come out rubbery Alan Pitcher said on October 11, 2017 Reply I first saw the oil in pasta thing in an article from tasty which is hilarious Regina Säveholm Olsson said on October 11, 2017 Reply For 21, just cook the filling in the pan first, then pour over the whisked egg. No need to use more than one pan. Diana Watson Kelley said on October 11, 2017 Reply Number 12 is my pet peeve too! It’s on every single recipe comments. People admits they didn’t follow the recipe, put their own spin on it, then complains that the recipe is no good. Gives it 1 star. Lol Cait Swartz said on October 11, 2017 Reply EVERYONE?? Really?? Even the people who decided these were cooking mistakes??!! I know it doesn’t REALLY matter, but how hard is it to say a less insulting “things you MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN” or “COMMON cooking mistakes that nearly everyone makes”? I know you’re not TRYING to be a condecending asshole, but that’s the way it comes across to plenty of readers. Just seems logical to treat your readers with respect. But whatever. Also, there actually ARE different ways of doing things in the world. These things aren’t necessarily “mistakes”, they can just be differences in preference and expectations. I’m so tired of ethnocentrism and people who simply cannot understand their way isn’t the sole correct way.
