I’ve been on a bit of a food kick as of late in terms of the topics I’m discussing in my posts. I’m not exactly sure why, and I hope you don’t mind, but for now, I’m sticking with this form of inspiration.
Cooking is a rather valuable skill in this thing we call life. It surprises me how many people I personally know that are unaware of how to go about conducting basic cooking abilities considering how relevant the concept of cooking food is for all of us, although it isn’t something I would refer to as an inherent skill. Cooking can be taught easily, though, so don’t fret if you’re culinary knowledge is a bit limited.
And, speaking of culinary knowledge, I thought I would share some pretty neat cooking hacks to help out anyone looking to improve their presence in the kitchen. This information comes from greatist.com.
“Store tomatoes stem end down to keep them from spoiling as quickly. This prevents air from entering and moisture from exiting the scar where the tomato once attached to the vine.
“Help brown sugar stay soft and scoopable by tossing an orange peel or a slice of apple along with the sugar into an airtight container.
“Your nose alone won’t always tell you if eggs have gone bad. To find out, gently place uncooked eggs in a bowl of cold water. If an egg sinks to the bottom, it’s A-OK. If it floats, it’s seen better days.
“To get the most juice out of a lemon, refrigerate, then microwave it for 15 to 20 seconds.
“When your pot runneth over, prevent overboiling by placing a wooden spoon across the top of it. Because wood is not a good material for conducting heat, the hot water strays away from the handle,” the website states.
