Virtual family, hello!
I have a question for y’all. When last did you read a book? I read this amazing book during the week and I would love to share it with you. Say something in th comment section of you want the book.
Ps. It’s less than 15 pages
So yesterday, I wanted to boil eggs but they had been in the house for a couple of weeks and I couldn’t tell if they were bad or not.
Then I remember I had learnt a couple of cooking hacks when i took an intensive class on catering and culinary art.
Of course I’m going to share them with you. I’m nice like that.
Back to the egg, I was able to figure out which was bad by doing the simple egg test. I put them all in a bowl of water and all sunk except one. Yes! I got the bad one out.
If eggs sink to the bottom of a bowl of cold water and lie flat on their sides, they are very fresh. If they are less fresh but still good to eat, they will stand on one end at the bottom. If they float to the surface, they are no longer fresh enough to eat!
Take note of at the bottom. The egg has to sink to be edible.
Even when you get eggs from a retail store, you could do the check to figure out how long the eggs has been in the store and if they are still fit for consumption.
A few other food hacks you could use at the convenience of your house include;
Freezing onions before cutting them. You could also dip them in a bowl of cold water about 5-10 mintues before cutting. This won’t make you cry.
I know i know. You really want to reuse that cooking oil . The slouttion is simple, fry some ginger in it first and the taste of whatever that was cooked disappears leaving you with good oil.
To prevent your unripe plantain from ripening, keep in a bowl of water for as long as you want them to remain unripe, take them out when you want to ripen.
Burnt a pot of rice?Solving it hasn’t been any easier. Place a piece of white bread on the hot rice, place the lid back on and leave for about 5 minutes. The bread absorb all the burnt smell. Open, take out the bread, serve and enjoy!
I used to tell my mom I’m allergic to red pepper to avoid touch them. They are just really hot. Not anymore tho! I found the solution. Rubbing a little bit of vegetable oil on your palms befor handling it and the hotness of the pepper won’t hurt your skin.
While try to make the perfect fried stew, cook ingredients in this order-onion, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, spices. It is based upon the time required in cooking them. It really works.
Try these hacks when you are cooking and you will be sure to see a difference🤗
See you all next week on the next blog post. Have a fab weekend!
Oh and don’t forget to leave a comment if you want the book.
Love you much.
