And the use for this would be? I assume for those who don't know how to boil water? Copied and saved. I could save it in a big pitcher and surprise those who are looking for a cold drink. Or omit the water and use the salt for a bath. Use to soak tired feet. I am sure there are many other uses. I just need time to think on it.

This recipe has so many possibilities.

I made it and it turned out great, but I made a few changes. First instead of water, I used pepsi, then instead of salt, I used bbq sauce. Then I added some cans of vegall, and pieces of rotisserie chicken. My family loved it and asked for it again!

There's always someone looking to improve what should be a simple recipe...

It must be really good. I put some on to boil and ran out to run a quick errand. When I got home the pot was empty and SO had a guilty look on her face...

I have a cookbook with a recipe for plain toast if someone needs it as a side dish for their salted water.
