Happy Tuesday All!
Here’s the next package of Terri’s Tips….
I have tried this before and it really is nice and is also good for when you have a cold. Personally, I’d probably add a splash of brandy or whiskey to it for an impromptu hot toddy!
♣ To stop vegetable or pasta water boiling over, rub veggie oil around the rim of the saucepan before bringing the water to the boil.
Can’t say I’ve ever heard this one before or tried it. Wonder if it matters if you use olive oil…
♣ Add a scrunched up piece of tissue paper to a biscuit tin or cookie jar to help keep them fresh and crunchy.
Guess this is the opposite effect from putting in a piece of sliced apple to keep them soft.
♣ Fruit such as apples and pears are full of vitamin C, but this is mainly found in the peel. Try to keep the peel on in any dessert recipe.
Hmmm…as we are catergorised as being ‘apples’ or ‘pears’, depending on our shape, I guess this means that we need to keep our clothes on when we eat desserts?
♣ For a low-fat alternative to sautéing, use a small amount of stock or wine rather butter or oil.
I do this, but I start off with a small bit of oil, just to get the nice browning effect on the veggies, especially onions, and add a little stock as they cook.
So there you have it, your kitchen tips for the week.
