Kitchen hacks

I love to cook, but I also love tips that make my cooking time less a hustle and I get to use less minutes. So these genius yet simple handsy tips will have you change how you have been doing simple things like choosing an Avocado

So here are handy and simple tricks for the next time you are in the kitchen

Peeling garlic

You can throw the whole bulb in the microwave on high for about twenty seconds. Then with ever so light peeling, the skin will come off. If you do not have a microwave, remove a clove from the bulb, slam it with a knife the skin will “burst” off the clove…or

Spilling pasta water/ milk

Myth or magic? A wooden spoon placed on the pot of the pasta you are cooking actually stops the water from spilling over. But, as much as it works, don’t leave the spoon there for too long cause then the wooden spoon will heat up and the water will rise no matter what.  Don’t use a metal spoon, use a wooden one.

Avocado

Next time when you go Avocado shopping, don’t press the fruit to know if it’s ripe or not. The truth about the state of the Avocado lies under the stem. Just peel it off (you might have to be sneaky about this; some sellers don’t want you to do that.

If it’s yellow or green, you’re good to go. If it’s brown, the avocado is too ripe. (If it doesn’t come off easily, it’s not ripe enough).

Eggs

The best way to check if eggs are still fresh before you break them is to use water.  Fill a bowl with water: level of the water should twice height of egg. Then, carefully lower the egg into the bowl.

If eggs sinks to bottom and lays flat, very fresh.  Egg stands on one end at the bottom of the bowl, fresh. Egg floats to the surface, they're no longer fresh enough to eat.
