- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar

If you set about to water down the flavoring of any particular dish (that is, to make the flavor disappear), what might be the very first ingredient that would come to mind as the most effective means to that end? If you thought WATER... then go to the head of the class. "if it's too thick, add water", they said. REALLY? Shall I then sprinkle in bits of nothingness, as a flavor enhancer?
