Not only that, they are also experts when it comes to prepping or dealing with leftovers so wastage is minimal. We have 5 tips and tricks we want to share with you that will make your meals look good as well as save your time, energy and money in the kitchen (so you have more time to do other things!
Glossy Choc For Dip/Glaze
Melting chocolate can be tricky, but it can turn average snacks like bananas and strawberries into sinful treats. Chocolate can be melted by itself but if you add some fat, it changes into a smoother consistency making it easy to drip and drizzle and looks shiny once it sets. A few tablespoons of vegetable or canola oil works best!
Hard Muffin? Hardly!
Muffins are one of those foods that lose their deliciousness after a day or two as they start to get stale or hard. To fix this, sprinkle them with water, place in a paper bag and pop in a hot oven for about 10 seconds. You can also use the microwave but the effect isn’t the same as they will end up too wet. The steam created by the water will restore moisture, reviving those day-old muffins!
Peeling potato? No Problem
We all love using potatoes in our cooking but peeling them can be such a hassle. This next trick allows you to peel potatoes in no time! Just add a pinch of salt when you boil them as this helps the skin to peel easily. This works best with small potatoes that can be cooked whole in boiling water. Large potatoes are best cut into pieces before boiling to reduce the time it takes to cook them.
Grating Ginger gingerly
This other trick will help you peel ginger in seconds by just using a spoon! With this trick, you can easily add some grated ginger to your cooking or even morning tea. Surprisingly, the tough-looking ginger skin is relatively thin and can easily come off by scraping it with any old spoon. Not only does this method help you get the most out of a unique ingredient, but it’s also a lot safer and produces less waste compared to using a knife.
Sticky Fish No More!
It gets frustrating when you cook fish and bits of the meat stick to the grill or pan. You’ve probably come across lots of reasonable tips to prevent that from happening, but the most delicious tip of them all is none other than to grill your fish on a bed of sliced lemons. The fish will naturally absorb the lemon while improving the flavour of the fish! Yummy!
