Using salt on both ripe and unripened fruit should be your new kitchen trick.
Though there's almost nothing better than perfectly ripened fruit, adding a pinch of salt actually amplifies the fruit's natural flavor—making it essentially a more enhanced version of itself—while sprinkling a pinch of salt to unripened fruit can actually reduce its bitterness. Try it the next time you're biting into a fresh peach or making a fruit salad.
The play on salt and fruit is not necessarily a new one: Just ask the Italians, who love wrapping pieces of melons with thin slices of salty prosciutto.
