When working with poultry, use this useful tip to let your poultry shine. Soak the poultry in a brine solution composed of salt and water overnight before cooking the poultry. Soaking the poultry in brine will help to unlock the flavors buried in the meat and make the poultry succulent and moist, creating an incredible poultry dish.
Freeze your excess ginger root. When you buy a ginger root for cooking, the chances are you won’t use the whole thing in one recipe. Whatever you have left can be frozen. Not only will it keep for a long time, it’s really easy to shave off a piece with a sharp knife, or grate it when it’s frozen.
Store your home-baked goodies and leftovers that need refrigeration in square or rectangular-shaped storage containers. Round containers are great, but take up precious refrigerator space while square and rectangular containers make the most of the limited shelf space. Rectangular storage containers also are easier to stack and store and save on space in your cupboards too.
If you are wanting to make a good sandwich, make sure you put the mayonnaise on from corner to corner. You don’t want to rush this step. Doing it this way will ensure that every bit is full of flavor. This will make the whole sandwich that much more tasty.
To ripen fruits like tomatoes, pears and bananas faster, place the pieces of fruit in a paper bag along with an apple of any variety. Apples emit ethylene gas — a natural plant hormone — as they ripen, which will affect the fruit inside the paper bag, accelerating their natural ripening process.
Knowledge is the first step of any recipe. If you have the knowledge to do as the recipe has instructed, you are sure to be able to make the food as it was meant to be without any problems. Utilize the information in these tips and make delicious recipes to stimulate the taste buds.
