Kitchen Tricks and Tips That Will Change Your Life

Is your kitchen a joy to be in? Do you find meal times a breeze? Most people reading this post will probably be
thinking “of course not!” The kitchen can certainly be one of the most stressful places in the house, especially
when you are cooking for a big number of people. However, there are some useful kitchen hacks that can
make your life much easier. Read on to discover more about them…
-        If you use an egg boiler, you can clean this with ease by boiling it for a short amount of time with a bit of
vinegar in. the vinegar will lift all of the residue and dissolve everything.
-        An air fryer is a must-have appliance for all kitchens, yet so many people don’t have one or have never
heard of one. Your air fryer will replace seven different appliances. Yes, that’s right: seven! You will free up
so much room in the kitchen, and you can cook with much greater ease and speed. What’s not to love?
-        Give your chicken breasts a whack with a rolling pin or anything else sturdy beforehand. This will tenderise
the meat, and it will taste much better.
-        Keep your bananas from going off quickly by separating them from one and other, and by keeping them
away from other fruit.
-        Does your brown sugar keep forming clumps? You can use marshmallows to stop this from happening.
-        Stop peeling your potatoes before you cook them. The best thing to do is cook your potatoes, soak them in
cold water, and then the skins will come right off.
-        If you have added too much salt to your stew or soup, add a peeled potato to the mix, and this will absorb
all of the salt for you. It takes about ten minutes for the magic to happen.
-        If you are dicing up avocados for guacamole or a salad, you can save yourself heaps of time in the kitchen
by using a potato masher.
-        While we are on the subject of avocado, you can sprinkle lemon juice on top of sliced avocado to stop it
from turning brown.
-        Freeze your wine! If you have a bit of leftover wine, you should freeze it in an ice cube tray. Whenever you
cook something like Bolognese, you can pop a red wine ice cube into the mix.
-        Chocolate, cheese, tomato, and citrus fruits all taste better at room temperature. Give it a try!
-        If you are sick of your wine getting too warm in the summer yet you don’t want to dilute it with ice cubes,
add frozen grapes to it instead. Perfect!
-        If you do a lot of baking, you should keep some butter in the freezer. You can then grate it whenever you
are making pastries, cakes, and so on. This is beneficial because it melts quicker and it mixes into the flour
-        Cut through the likes of cakes and cheeses with unscented floss.
-        One of the best ways to peel ginger is by using a spoon. This will ensure you do not lose all of that extra
-        Are you worried that your eggs in the fridge have gone off? Place one in a glass of water. If it is off, it will
float. If it sinks, it is good to eat.
-        You don’t need to peel garlic. You can simply cut the root end off, and then use the flat side of the blade
on the knife the squish it. Crushed garlic imparts much more flavour into a dish than minced garlic anyway.
-        If you are going to prepare Carpaccio, you should put your meat in the freezer for a small amount of time.
This will make it much easier for you to cut those super thin slices you need.
So there you have it: some of the best kitchen hacks to make your life easier! Try the suggestions that have
been provided above and see how much of a difference this makes when you next prepare a meal. Life in the
kitchen does not need to be as difficult as it seems.
