Flash Fiction Number 15 - Usless Ingredient

Useless Ingredient

I can’t taste it. I can’t smell it. As far as I know it has no nutritional value. It serves no other purpose than to fill up the recipe card!
But it’s on the card. I have to put it in. As soon as I leave out that one useless ingredient I will miss it. I know myself.
So I put it in and stay true to the recipe. But just a dash, because anything more would be a waste! I have to save enough for all of my other recipes that beg for it. My useless, bitter, secret ingredient.
