Today, I am going to share some Cooking Tips that we always need in our daily life, some of them can even amaze you. Please leave comment if you know some tips as well. I would be glad to know.
> After cutting some fruits (such as apple and pear) they start getting darken. If you want to avoid this, after peeling, place them in cold water with lemon juice for at least 20 minutes, now it will retain their natural color and when making a fruit salad will look much better.
> A very dry lemon can become rich and juicy if you dip it into a cup of boiled water for a few minutes, this will leave it in perfect condition.
>The trick for peeling grapes is as easy as to place the bunch in boiling water for half a minute.
> If you only need a few drops of lemon, prick the needle through one end of the lemon, and squeeze through the hole (as much as you need). It’s a great trick and will serve you for several times.
> To avoid bad odor released when cauliflower is cooking, place a piece of wheat bread in the bottom of the pot before putting it to cook.
> If you don’t want to make your eyes more uncomfortable while chopping onions, put it a couple of minutes in the freezer before you chop them.
> To see if the oil is hot enough to start frying, simply place a clove of garlic to check if it’s ready ready. We can also try placing a wooden spoon, and if bubbles are made then it’s done.
> The onion has a naturally strong taste and smell, to reduce this before preparing the desired recipe, place onion in a bowl, cover with water and add a pinch of salt, leave it for five minutes, then remove and rinse water.
> When chopping herbs, spread some salt on the cutting board. That will prevent them skipping.
> If you need to add more oil when you’re sautéing, put it on the edge of the pan so that, so that you don’t get in trouble.
> To make the vegetables maintain a bright and natural color, immediately after cooking should be immersed in ice water.
> To get all the juice from lemons, hit them firmly with your hand on a hard surface for about a minute or tie them up in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds.
> If you’d like to add lemon or vinegar to salads with fresh vegetables, place it just before serving to prevent their wilt.
> For a crisp lettuce and fresh look they should be stored in a container with water and lemon juice immediately before we use them.
> When the food is cooked in a clay pot, the temperature should be a little higher than when cooking in the containers made of other material. If the same temperature is maintained, the cooking time should be a little higher.
> If you want to improve the crispness of potato chips, leave raw potatoes in the cold water for at least half an hour before you fry them.
