Very Important Kitchen Tips That Will Change Your Life - A Must Know!

Hello Kitchen mates, and welcome to yet another beautiful day...today, we will be learning some KITCHEN tips that will help us improve our kitchen skills and enhance our dishes and meals. Remember your kitchen is the most important room in your home, so handle it with utmost care because there lies your life and death.

Without wasting much of your time, let's go straight to today's kitchen tips for your kitchen:




1. If you are preparing a dish or meal like soup, and unfortunately, you happen to over-salt the soup, just drop in a peeled potato. The potato will absorb the excess salt.


2. Are you tired of dealing with cracked egg shell whenever you decide to boil your egg? Then next time you are boiling eggs, add a pinch of salt to keep the shells from cracking.


3. Never put citrus fruits (Oranges, Lemons, limes, etc) or tomatoes in the fridge. The low temperatures degrade the aroma and flavor of these fruits.(That's why our tomatoes don't last in the fridge), instead spread them on the floor where they get enough fresh air to keep them fresh and yummy.


4. To clean iron cooking ware, don’t use detergents. Just scrub them with salt and a clean, dry paper towel, this will keep your pots shining like the star.


5. No one loves to meet his or her cooking pot stinking even though you washed it with enough detergent the last time you cooked with it, so to avoid such from happening next time, when storing empty airtight containers, throw in a pinch of salt to keep them from getting stinky; hope this helps?

6. If you are making gravy(stew) and accidentally burn it, just pour it into a clean pan and continue cooking it. Add sugar a little at a time, tasting as you go to avoid 'over-sugaring' it. The sugar will cancel out the burned taste.



7. Burned a pot of rice? Just place a piece of white bread on top of the rice for 5-10 minutesto draw out the burned flavour. Be careful not to scrape the burned pieces off of the bottom of the pan when serving the rice.



8. Before you chop fresh red peppers, rub a little vegetable oil into your hands and your skin won’t absorb the spiciness.



9. If you aren’t sure how fresh your eggs are, place them in about four inches of water. Eggs that stay on the bottom are fresh. If only one end tips up, the egg is less fresh and should be used soon. If it floats, it’s past the fresh stage.



10. To banish ants from the kitchen, find out where they are coming in and cover the hole with petroleum jelly(Vaseline). Ants won’t trek through the jelly. If they are coming under a door, draw a line on the floor with chalk. The little bugs also won’t cross a line of chalk.

11. Don’t store your bananas in a bunch or in a fruit bowl with other fruits. Separate your bananas and place each in a different location. Bananas release gases which cause fruits (including other bananas) to ripen quickly. Separating them will keep them fresh longer.



12. To keep potatoes from budding in the bag put an apple in with them.



13. If you manage to have some leftover wine, cocktail drinks at the end of the evening, freeze it in ice cube trays for easy addition to sauces (white wine works wonders in sauces, I don't joke with them) in the future.



14. After boiling pasta or potatoes, cool the water and use it to water your house plants. The water contains nutrients that your plants will love.



15. When defrosting meat from the freezer, pour some vinegar over it. Not only does it tenderize the meat; it will also bring down the freezing temperature of the meat and cause it to thaw quicker. # Note every woman should have vinegar in her kitchen.

16. Do you cry while peeling off onions, then try this. After peeling off your onions, refrigerate the onions for at least 5minutes, then dice it. You will be glad you did.



17. For aluminum pans that are looking dull, just boil some apple peels in them. This will brighten up the aluminum and make your house smell yummy.


18. If your salt is becoming lumpy, put a few grain of rice in with it to absorb excess moisture.



19. Always keep an aloe vera plant in your kitchen. It’s invaluable when you scrape your arm or burn your finger. Just break off a leaf and rub the gel from the inside on the injury.


20. When making a soup, sauce, that ends up too fatty or greasy, drop in an ice cube. The ice will attract the fat, which you can then scoop
out. This works wonders
