Do you venture out on the Internet to find great time-saving ideas that you may have to try to believe? Here are a few to try in the kitchen.
Spice Jar Labels
When you buy spices, do you transfer them into glass spice bottles at home? A quick way to label those jars is to cut the name of the spice, such as Chili, out of the package, affix face to clear sticky tape so that the name can be read on the non-stick side, then tape it to the outside of the spice bottle.
Whether it’s only a clove or an entire bulb, toss it into an empty bottle. Place the lid securely on top and then shake it vigorously. You can even dance around the kitchen while you shake that jar for a few minutes. You will see the garlic skins falling away inside. When done dump out the contents, separate the clean garlic cloves, and discard the skins.
Keep the Water in the Pot
Prevent a rapidly boiling pot from overflowing that foam and water by laying a wooden spoon over the top. It does keep the bubbling foam in the pot!
Peel Hard Boiled Eggs
You can peel hard boiled eggs quickly. After they are boiled and rapidly cooled, place them in a bowl that has a tight-fitting lid. Next add some water, about half the level of the eggs, and then secure place the lid on top. Now, as with the garlic, shake vigorously in all directions for a minute. When you remove the lid, most, if not all, the egg shells will easily slide away.
For a single egg use a glass or small jar, add the water, and shake until the shell falls away.
If you wonder about cooking the perfect egg, here is a video that shows you how.
The are many shortcuts and quick solutions on the Internet. The best places to find them is on Pinterest, YouTube, and shared by friends on Facebook. I hope the ideas I shared above will save you time in the kitchen.
