COOKING TIPS YOU WILL JUST LOVE
These cooking tips are designed for those who are new to cooking and will benefit from doing things a little smarter and faster.
COOK PASTA IN 60 SECONDS
This is great for camping. Put your pasta in water inside a ziplock bag and soak it for a few hours (or as long as you have to). After soaking pasta it cooks in less than a minute.
CUTTING MANGO OR AVOCADO
The process is the same. Once you have removed the pit, you simply cut right through to the skin. Cut across and then cut up and down. When you flip out the skin you will have nice cubes that fall right away from the skin.
KEEP A CUTTING BOARD SAFE
A wet dish cloth or a paper towel under your cutting board will stop it from moving or slipping.
SPOON A KIWI FRUIT
Use a spoon to dig flesh out of kiwi fruit. All you will have left is the skin.
BAKING SODA ON ONIONS
A small sprinkling of baking soda will have your onions caramelised in no time.
COOKING WITH GINGER
Use a grater for ginger. To get it firm, freeze it first.
USING A GRATER
Cheese graters do a better job when they have a light coating of cooking spray or you can simply wipe a small amount of cooking oil or olive oil.
GET MORE JUICE FROM LEMONS
Microwave them for a whole lot more juice. You only need to put them in the microwave for around 15 seconds.
TAKE THE WORK OUT OF PEELING GARLIC
Put your garlic head into any jar with a lid and shake it hard. Your work is over in seconds.
Apple slicers are great for making super thin and crispy fries.
SKIP THE PEEL
You don’t have to peel potatoes before you boil them. After boiling, the skin simply slips off.
THINLY SLICE BEEF
Freeze beef before you slice it so you can make those ultra thin slices.
Whipping cream is easy if you have a marble and a jar with a lid. Add cream and your marble and shake. Just don’t shake so hard you break your jar. Keep shaking and you will get butter.
After boiling eggs, simply run them under cold water and shake them up a little. The shells slide right off.
