Clever rice

August 6, 2014

I am writing this blog in the café at Nuri beach, Limangazi, Kas, having just had lunch.


The salt cellar interested me, in that the salt had yellow bits in it, which the waiter confirmed to be piliç, rice.

The salt poured perfectly, the rice grains being too large for the cellar's holes. Clearly, rice is being used as a desiccant stopping the salt from drying up. Clever.

Googling, I found lots of references to using rice as a rescue for when phones or tablet are dropped in or have water spilt over them. Same principle.

You live and learn.
