Cooking is often a matter of adding seasonings a little at a time until the flavor is just right. When cooking potato soup, it's easy to take the seasoning just a bit too far, and before you know it, you sample your delicious soup only to discover it has turned into a salty disaster. Kitchen disasters happen to everyone, even professionals, but don't panic. With the addition of a couple of ingredients found in nearly every kitchen, the over-salted potato soup can be salvaged.
Things You'll Need

- Apple cider vinegar
- Mixing spoon
Add a teaspoon of white vinegar, followed by a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Stir well.
Taste the potato soup. If the soup is still too salty, add a teaspoon of white sugar and one of apple cider vinegar. Stir well.
Sample the soup after each addition. Add sugar and vinegar one teaspoon at a time until the salty flavor has been neutralized.
