Silly post of the day.

So last week I was watching this TV show with the sound off because I had music playing. These two women on this morning show had watermelon cut up and a bottle of mustard. They took a taste, didn't make a face and proceeded to taste another and another. With no sound, I don't know what they said, but they kept eating watermelon dipped in mustard. I googled watermelon and mustard and it's a thing. Okay, it's a silly thing.

So last night we had some watermelon with dinner and I broke out the mustard. My wife refused to try it. It is something like sweet and sour in that there two things are going on at once. It's definitely interesting and not as bad as it sounds. Anyone else tried this?

Never tried that (I will), but I generally put salt on watermelon when I eat it. People probably find that weird, as well.

Not sure about the mustard but one of my favourite starters is Prosciutto e Melone (chunks of cantaloupe melon wrapped in Parma or San Daniele ham).

I have put salt on watermelon. It brings out the taste. I'm currently supposed to be on low salt. The woman who started the thing was around a group putting hot sauce on watermelon. She didn't like hot sauce so tried mustard. That seems logical. I'll have to try some hot sauce next time.

Watermelon with mustard, now that's a new one.

But I'll stick to just watermelon, by itself. My loss I guess :).

I often watch sports on TV with music playing while the sport commentators are on MUTE ;-)

I'll have to try some mustard dip next time we have watermelon. Sounds weird.

I'm also a horseradish addict--raw grated/pickled HR, mayo-based HR sauce, HR mustards, or Japanese Wasabi paste. I wonder how those would fare with watermelon? Fresh ginger comes to mind, as well... hmmm...

Peanut butter on apple slices as well. Probably peanut butter on anything.

There you go. Different things going on, twists and turns. The pallet isn't sure what is happening, but is strangely amused.

Too complicated.

Ying/Yang/hot/sour trending combo of the month?

Next time I have some watermelon I'll give it a shot, but I'm NOT going out of my way to do so.

Thanks!

Plane Jane Frenchs mustard. Get as fancy as you've got. We just happened to have watermelon last night. I wouldn't go to any trouble either.

What is the definition the low salt diet you are supposed to be on?

Low salt isn't no salt Dr. Tweaker. It's 1400 -2000 mg per day. I had blood work yesterday and my blood levels of sodium are at the lower end of normal. Thank you for your concern.

Who said it was? Just don't let it get to 2001 mg or you will turn into a pumpkin. The AHA prefers 1500 max.

It's low. Do you know yours? Oh wait, your level is of no consequence as so many poor people have low D levels and are dying.

"The reference range for serum sodium is 135-147 mmol/L" As far as I know, and the below study shows it as such, dietary sodium has very little effect on the measurement of plasma sodium. NA appears to be pretty tightly regulated, by the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system as far as I can tell. At the present time I have drastically decreased my NA dietary intake from levels very likely to be way lower than US average with obvious positive results. I have read that there are a number of shall we say tribal people who live on like 200-700mg sodium a day without a problem from low NA. So, to sum up, it's low NA intake that is needed, not low plasma levels. Tweaker456
