A pinch of spilled salt must be thrown into the devils eyes over the left shoulder.

If you drop silverware it means you can expect company, a teaspoon a child, a fork a woman, and a knife a man.

Dropping a teaspoon also means you can expect a kiss and another spoon to wash!

My mother's version was that the gum would wind round your intestines and strangle you. Showed a slight misunderstanding of anatomy!

Well, it's worked for me whenever I've overdone the salt anytime in the last 50 years.

You must always make a hole in the bottom of the shell when you've eaten your boiled egg or a witch will go to sea in it and sink a ship.

Parsley should be planted on Good Friday to ensure it will grow well and also whoever plants it will rule the house for the year.

The only way I've been able to save something too salty is to add more unsalted liquid.

It might mess up the rest of the ingredients and spices, but worth a try when you've got a pot of inedible salty food.

Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky in the morn, sailors be warned.

But I do like yours. Sounds like good excuse to make a popular dish that almost everyone likes.
