    24 Awesome Kitchen Tips

    # kitchen tips…

    1. If you happen to over-salt a pot of soup, just
    drop in a peeled potato. The potato will absorb
    the excess salt.

    2. When boiling eggs, add a pinch of salt to keep
    the shells from cracking.

    3. Never put citrus fruits(Oranges,Lemons, limes,
    etc) or tomatoes in the fridge. The low
    temperatures degrade the aroma and flavor of
    these fruits.(That’s why our tomatoes don’t last
    in the fridge)

    4. To clean iron cookl-ware, don’t use detergents.
    Just scrub them with salt and a clean, dry paper

    5. When storing empty airtight containers, throw
    in a pinch of salt to keep them from getting

    6. If you are making gravy(stew) and accidentally
    burn it, just pour it into a clean pan and continue
    cooking it. Add sugar a little at a time, tasting as
    you go to avoid ‘over-sugaring’it. The sugar will
    cancel out the burned taste.

    7. Burned a pot of rice? Just place a piece of
    white bread on top of the rice for 5-10 minutes to
    draw out the burned flavour. Be careful not to
    scrape the burned pieces off of the bottom of the
    pan when serving the rice.

    8. Before you chop fresh red peppers, rub a little
    vegetable oil into your hands and your skin won’t
    absorb the spiciness.

    9. If you aren’t sure how fresh your eggs are,
    place them in about four inches of water. Eggs
    that stay on the bottom are fresh. If only one end
    tips up, the egg is less fresh and should be used
    soon. If it floats, it’s past the fresh stage.

    10. To banish ants from the kitchen, find out
    where they are coming in and cover the hole with
    petroleum jelly(Vaseline). Ants won’t trek through
    the jelly. If they are coming under a door, draw a
    line on the floor with chalk. The little bugs also
    won’t cross a line of chalk.

    11. Don’t store your bananas in a bunch or in a
    fruit bowl with other fruits. Separate your
    bananas and place each in a different location.
    Bananas release gases which cause fruits
    (including other bananas) to ripen quickly.
    Separating them will keep them fresh longer.

    12. To keep potatoes from budding in the bag,
    put an apple in with them.

    13. If you manage to have some leftover wine,
    cocktail drinks at the end of the evening, freeze it
    in ice cube trays for easy addition to sauces
    (white wine works wonders in sauces, i don’t joke
    with them) in the future.
    14. After boiling pasta or potatoes, cool the water
    and use it to water your house plants. The water
    contains nutrients that your plants will love.

    15. When defrosting meat from the freezer, pour
    some vinegar over it. Not only does it tenderize
    the meat; it will also bring down the freezing
    temperature of the meat and cause it to thaw
    quicker. # Noteevery woman should have vinegar
    in her kitchen.

    16. Do you cry while peeling off onions, then try
    this. After peeling off your onions, refrigerate the
    onions for atleast 5minutes, then dice it. You will
    be glad you did.

    17. For aluminium pans that are looking dull, just
    boil some apple peels in them. This will brighten
    up the aluminum and make your house smell

    18. If your salt is becoming lumpy, put a few
    grains of rice in with it to absorb excess

    19. Always keep an aloe vera plant in your
    kitchen. It’s invaluable when you scrape your arm
    or burn your finger. Just break off a leaf and rub
    the gel from the inside on the injury.

    20. When making a soup, sauce, that ends up too
    fatty or greasy, drop in an ice cube. The ice will
    attract the fat, which you can then scoop out.
    This works wonders

    21. To reuse cooking oil without tasting whatever
    was cooked in the oil previously, cook a 1/4″
    piece of ginger in the oil. It will remove any
    remaining flavors and odors.

    22. If your milk always goes bad before you can
    finish it, try adding a pinch of salt to the carton
    when you first open it. It will stay fresh days

    23. If two drinking glasses become stuck together
    after stacking, it’s not impossible to unstick
    them. Just put ice in the inner glass and dunk the
    outer glass in warm water. The warm glass will
    expand and the cold glass will contract, making
    the glasses separate easily.

    24. For splinters under the fingernail, soaking the
    affected finger in a bowl of milk with a piece of
    bread in it, it will help ……lobatan(st.ikepumpn)
