The Best Kept Cooking Secrets That Will Make Your Life Easier

  1. 1. C O O K I N G S E C R E T S T H A T W I L L M A K E Y O U R L I F E E A S I E R B E S T K E P T
  2. 2. SALT Salt has some cool uses in the kitchen besides flavoring your dishes. Milk Throw a pinch of salt into the next carton of milk you open. You won’t taste it and it’ll extend the expiration date. Tupperware You can also put a little bit of salt into your tupperware. It'll prevent the plastic from beginning to smell while it’s being stored.
  3. 3. POTATOES After you boil potatoes (or pasta), save the water and use it to water your plants. It’s full of nutrients that’ll help the plants grow. Just let it cool first! A freshly peeled potato can also remove salt from soup that’s too salty. Drop the potato into the pot and it’ll absorb some of the salt. A freshly peeled potato can also get rid of fruit stains on your fingers!
  4. 4. EGGS To check the freshness of an egg, just fill up a glass of water and drop the egg in. If it sinks, it’s still fresh. If one end floats up, then you should make it soon. If the entire egg floats, it’s no longer fresh and you should get rid of it.
  5. 5. BREAD Sometimes it’s hard to use up an entire loaf of bread in time. Seal a stalk of celery into the bag with your bread when you notice the bread is beginning to get stale to extend it's freshness. Pieces of bread can also be used to help out other foods. When you bake, stick a piece of bread with the food to keep it moist. If you burn rice, you can place a piece of white bread on top of it for 5 minutes or so to get rid of the burned flavor.
  6. 6. FRUITS & VEGGIES To keep veggies fresh, line the vegetable drawers with papers towels, which will absorb the excess moisture that causes veggies to rot. Wrap lettuce in dry paper towels to keep it fresh. Avoid storing citrus fruits and tomatoes in the fridge, because it’ll make nutrients drain out. If you want your herbs to last longer, store them in a bunch in a bag in the freezer. They’ll stay fresher longer and will defrost as soon as you put them in a hot pan or pot.
