  • this recipe calls for way to much salt, if you use it, halve the amount of salt at the very least. I think they may have meant to put teaspoons instead of tablespoons. - 3/12/10

    You're right, and I'm sorry. It should have been teaspoons instead of tablespoons. Proofreading fail on my part.
