Cooking Tips

Tip Procedure :

1.                 To prevent your pumpkin or custard pie from getting a soggy crust, brush the unbaked crust with egg white then bake just a few minutes to dry the egg white and seal the crust. Add you filling and bake as usual.

2.                 Butter your knife before cutting a meringue pie--you'll get a clean cut without damaging the meringue

3.                 Lay the barbecue grill rack on the lawn overnight. The dew combined with the enzymes in the grass to loosen any burned on grease. Try it with messy oven racks too.

4.       If the tops are sticking to your tubes of glues, try rubbing a little petroleum jelly around the rim. It works on paint lids, too.

5                   Crumbled newspapers lining the vegetable compartments will keep veggies crisp.

6.                 Before boiling eggs, poke a small hole with a sewing needle in the bottom of the egg. The egg will peel with ease!

7        Burn a candle right next to the chopping board where you are cutting the onions...the gas given off by the onions is "burned up" by the candle. It really does work!

8.                 To keep egg yolks from crumbling when slicing hard cooked eggs, wet the knife before each cut.

9.                 To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

10.     To prevent egg shells from cracking, add a pinch of salt to the water before hard-boiling.

11.     Run your hands under cold water before pressing Rice Krispie treats in the pan, the marshmallow won't stick to your fingers.

12.     To get the most juice out of fresh lemons, bring them to room temperature and roll them under your palm against the kitchen counter before squeezing.

13.     If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato. It absorbs the excess salt for an instant "fix me up."

14.      When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corns natural sweetness.
