A moment of appreciation for these food hacks

Food, and most things associated with it, have earned a special place in my heart. I love to eat, as do most folks, I imagine, and I enjoy cooking as well, although I absolutely prefer consumption over preparation.

Does anyone else find it positively enraging to consider how long it can take to create a meal, versus how quickly it is eaten? I’m calling bullshit.

Anyways, I thought I would research some ‘food hacks’ (that is literally what I typed into Google), and share them with all of you to make life simpler, especially in the kitchen. These hacks come from lovefood.com.

“Turn your peanut butter upside down: Natural peanut butter – and other nut butters – don’t have any added stabilisers, so the oils will usually separate and move to the top of the jar. Save yourself the time and faff (and mess) of trying to stir it together, and just store it upside down. The oils will head to the bottom of the jar, making it much easier to use when the time comes. Happy nut butter spreading and spooning.

“Ripen bananas slowly with a banana hanger: Invest in a banana hanger to stop your fruit from getting bruised and going bad too quickly. As long as it’s located somewhere that allows for free movement of air around the bananas, this handy contraption will slow down the ripening process. Keep your bunch away from other fruit too – bananas give off gases that cause produce to spoil faster.

“Microwave pizza with water: Revive leftover, dried-out pizza by microwaving it with a mug of water. As the water evaporates, moisture fills the microwave, rehydrating the dry crust and giving you a gooey, cheesy pizza slice once more.

“Grate butter for easy spreading: If you’re having a hard time with cold butter, use a grater to soften the perfect amount to put on toast or bread. It’ll make the butter easier to spread, without destroying your loaf in the process. This method is even used by chefs to make perfect buttery pastry,” the web page explains.
