salted water for boiling

i confess....this is not one of my recipes (to possess such genius, sheer bliss), but have found it invaluable. i first stumbled across it on epicurious, a veritable trasure trove of recipes and all things food. imagine my delight as i trawled through their archives and fell upon this. admittedly, it wasn't too hard to find as it was one of their highest rated recipes back when they had such a category (they don't have it anymore, i wonder why...).
without further ado, here it is.

when salting water for cooking, use 1 tablespoon of salt for every 4 quarts of water.

that's it. eloquent in its simplicity.

ps. i did review it, but i'm not trawling through the hundreds of reviews just to find what i wrote, but don't let me stop might get a bit of a chuckle out of it.

Thats really funny.. & I thought the commonsense cookery books held the funniest simple recipes.. like how to boil an egg or make a pot of tea.
