Here are some suggestions for your next visit to a kitchen.
. 1 Prepping salad before serving is a huge time saver. Layer all the ingredients in a bowl, and don't add the dressing until it's time to serve.
. 2 Keep your spices away from heat sources like the stove or lights. Herbs and spices can lose their flavor when exposed to humidity and heat.
. 3 Save old, stale bread to make breadcrumbs in a food processor; you can freeze them for up to 6 months. In addition, many recipes can include stale bread, and trying to make gnocchi, may become your next project.
. 4 Let steaks come to room temperature before seasoning and grilling. Allow the blood and the moisture to run freely within the flesh. The protein will cook and taste much better.
. 5 Store fresh herbs in a glass of water in your refrigerator. Replenish the water after three days, and continue the process indefinitely.
. 6 To prevent tears, cut off the onion's root before slicing.
. 7 For crispy fries or chips: slice the potato, then remove the starch by soaking it in water for one hour before baking.
. 8 Is celery getting floppy? Try wrapping it in tin foil before storing it in the refrigerator.
. 9 Soften hard brown sugar by placing a piece of dry bread in the bag overnight.
. 10 Roll citrus on the counter using the palm of your hand to help release all of the juice pockets.
. 11 Kitchen Pantry Essentials: Olive Oil, Flour, Broth, Salt, Brown Rice or Pasta, Beans, Vinegar, Sugar, Eggs, and Soy Sauce.
