    Gaynel do you use lawrys seasoning salt for many dished. I bought it once and it sat in my cubboard for a year and turned to a rock. I never did find any use for it.

    that is what I use, tho now I can't for my own dishes due to the sodium, but I use it on my man,s food all the time. I season everything with it, hardly use table salt on meats or etc. I wish I could remember to see if Lawry's makes a salt free.
