We eat food every single day, thus making preparing and consuming food a pivotal part of our daily lives. Here are 13 Kitchen hacks that most will surely find extremely useful.
1. Save Your Salty Soups
2. Fix Burnt Rice
Rice is sometimes hard to cook. It can easily burn on the bottom and then ruin the flavor of the entire pot. Before you scrap the pot, place a piece of white bread on top of the rice for a few minutes. It will absorb the burnt flavor and save the rice that is not stuck on the bottom.
3. Pop All Your Popcorn Kernels
4. Stop Potatoes From Sprouting
There’s nothing worse than forgetting about your potatoes and then finding out they have sprouted. You can stop them from sprouting so soon by dropping an apple in the bag with the potatoes. The apple will stop them from sprouting.
5. Defrost Food Faster
If you want to defrost your meat quickly, you can do so by pouring vinegar on the surface. It will help melt the ice and bring your frozen food back to life. Just rinse it before cooking to remove the vinegar.
6. Remove Excess Fat
If your sauce or soup is looking too oily, there’s a way to take some of the oil and grease out of it. Just wrap some ice cubes in paper towels and drop them into the soup or sauce. They will pull the excess oil and grease right out of the dish.
7. Thicken Runny Sauces
8. Get Rid Of The Ice On Ice Cream
When you put your ice cream in the freezer, it can collect ice and get a crusty top. Nobody wants to eat that. You can avoid this by putting a piece of wax paper on the ice cream before you put the lid on. Take the lid off when you are ready to eat it, peel back the wax paper, and enjoy soft ice cream.
9. Prevent Cake From Sticking
10. Warm Baking Ingredients
11. Roast Without Flipping
12. Shower Cap Wrap
Don’t waste plastic wrap and aluminum foil to cover your foods. Use shower caps instead. The elastic band around them makes it easier for them to fit on bowls and containers. You can just rinse them clean and reuse them, too.
13. Chill Plastic Wrap
Plastic wrap can be frustrating to work with. It never wants to peel up from the roll, and when it does, it tears or is hard to rip in a straight line. There’s an easy way to fix it, though. Just put your plastic wrap in the fridge. When it’s cold, it’s easier to work with.
