Dear Barbara: I don’t mind the taste of anchovies, but I do mind that they are so extremely salty. I’ve tried rinsing them in a strainer, but that didn’t seem to help much. Is there something I can do to make them taste less salty? — Nan from Lodi
Dear Nan: Try soaking the anchovies for 10 minutes in water or milk. Then you can rinse them in a strainer. Be sure that you pat the anchovies dry before you use them.
