10 KITCHEN HACKS TO SAVE TIME
1.) To save time, instead of flipping, when roasting items such as French fries and your favorite veggies, pre-heating your cookie sheet eliminates the need to flip halfway through.
2.) You can actually foam milk without a frother. If you don't have those elegant machines, you can get a frothy and creamy milk foam by filling a jar with a lid with milk. Not more than half of the jar. Then shake and shake the jar until the milk has double its size. Remove the lid and microwave the milk for just 30 seconds.
3.) You can reheat your pizza without drying them out or other baked goods. All you need to do is place a cup of water in the microwave with the pizza. This adds moisture to the air so the food will not dry out.
4.) You can save those lovely fresh herbs for later use!
Just get an ice-cube tray. Then freeze fresh chopped herbs in water, olive oil, or stock for later use as a seasoning agent.
5.) Speed up the ripening of your fruits by putting them in a paper bag. When fruit is tossed into the bag, concentrated ethylene gas helps it ripen faster.
6.) Save cut fruit from turning brown. You can mix honey and water or squeeze a little lemon juice to it since the citric acid and the vitamin C in lemon juice slows down the oxidation process that causes discoloration. Same goes with honey. The peptide in honey slows down the oxidation process of fruit.
7.) Before grating cheeses like fontina and fresh mozzarella, freezing it for about 30 minutes will make cheese grating easier and less messy.
8.) To soften butter faster without a grater, cut a stick of butter into about eight pieces. More surface area will allow the stick to soften more rapidly.
9.) We can prevent pots from overboiling by placing a wooden spoon across a pot. Wood is not a good material for conducting heat, the hot water strays away from the handle.
10.) Quickly scoop out squash seeds and other vegetable seeds with an ice cream scoop. The edge of the scoop is sharp, it cuts through the fibery stuff inside the squash easier than your regular spoon.
