Blue Apron is now on video! Every Thursday, we’re posting a new video on our YouTube channel and over here on the blog.

We’ve already helped you cut down your prep time in the kitchen by finessing your knife skills and making short work of onionsgarlic, and carrots.

Today, we’re talking about a skill every good cook needs to have in his or her arsenal: the ability to season food to taste. But what does that even mean? Basically, to make food taste its absolute best, it’s key to add just the right amount of salt. In this video, featuring our own Chef Matt Wadiak, we show you how to add salt to your food little by little, tasting as you go, so that you achieve taste perfection. Under-salted food is bland and over-salted food is, well, salty. Avoid both fates by following along as we prepare a special soup on which to test our salting theories.

Watch the video, subscribe to our YouTube channel, and then get salting!
