Easy tips for the avid ( and not so much) cook.
1-Make your own chicken stock and freeze in individual containers. That way, when you want to prepare a recipe (like soup) that requires this ingredient, you can simply pull it out of the freezer.
2-Smelly hands after cutting an onion? DO NOT SCRUB! Place you hands under cold water for about 20 seconds and then wash with soap and rinse.
3-When buying fresh radishes and beets, do not remove the stems and leaves. That way, they won’t wither.
4-Keep herbs fresher longer. Rinse and remove any dirt and place in an airtight plastic bag.
5-Freeze fresh chopped vegetables for quick soups.
6-Do not throw away brown bananas. Freeze them and use them to make smoothies.
7-For flavorful mashed potatoes, boil the potatoes with 1/2 of a small onion. Toss the onion after it is cooked.
