We’re embarking on a new video series where we tackle all kinds of culinary questions—those things you may be too embarrassed to ask. What is a sprig of thyme? How do I cut a kiwi? There’s no question too basic; you’ll be surprised how many people have the same question you do. This week, we clear up confusion about what a “dash” of salt refers to. Check out the video, and let us know what other questions you need answered.
