In our society, it is customary that a woman is more often involved in cooking. Men can only fry eggs or potatoes in a pan. That is why sometimes useful tips for the stronger sex appear in print media or on websites. One men's magazine has published culinary life hacks on its pages for its target audience, but it is worth noting that the hostesses will also come in handy.
1. Storage of eggs
Eggs are potentially hazardous. Their shelf life is limited and it is absolutely not worth violating it. It is worth noting that during the summer months, the shelf life of this product becomes even more limited. So, if you are going to take raw chicken eggs on the road, brush them with vegetable oil. The grease film will prevent bacteria from entering the shell.
2. Started pie
To prevent the started pie from becoming stale, attach a piece of bread to the cut points. Ordinary toothpicks will help to do this.
3. Lemon juice
If you need a few drops of lemon juice and don't want the fruit to dry in your fridge, use a toothpick. Just wash the lemon, remember it well in your hands, and then pierce it with a toothpick in the middle and squeeze out a small amount of juice. After that, cover the small hole with tape and put it in the refrigerator until next time.
4. Cleaning the eggs
According to Novate.ru, you will not have any problems with cleaning eggs if you first pierce the shell with a pushpin. Just do it very carefully so that the egg doesn't crack.
5. Unripe bananas
There are many ways to help ripen bananas, but the quickest one involves using the oven. Preheat it to 150 degrees and place the baking sheet with fruit inside. The bananas will ripen in 15-20 minutes.
6. Celery and broccoli
According to Novate.ru, celery and broccoli can "live" for a whole month in your refrigerator, if these products are previously wrapped in foil.
7. Sprouted potatoes
If you are going to store potatoes for a long time, you may be faced with the fact that the fruits will begin to sprout. Apples will help slow this process down. The ethylene in apples will keep potatoes from sprouting.
8. Leftover mayonnaise
To completely clear the jar of mayonnaise and use the product down to the last drop, add a little vinegar, olive oil, spices and herbs to it. Swirl the contents of the jar well so that the leftover mayonnaise comes off the walls. The resulting mixture makes a great salad dressing.
9. Unripe pineapples
To ripen the underripe pineapple faster, tear off all the foliage from it and store it upside down.
10. Pure broth
To make the broth clean and acquire a golden hue, cook the peeled, not chopped onion with the meat.
11. Coffee ice
Coffee lovers will definitely love this summer coffee drink. To do this, simply pour a cup of strong black coffee into ice molds and send to the freezer. Add 2-3 pieces of coffee ice cubes to milk.
12. Perfect bacon
The right bacon is not fried in a pan at all. This must be done in the oven. Spread thin slices of meat on a baking sheet covered with foil and put in an oven preheated to 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
13. Freshness of eggs
Another way to test the freshness of eggs is to look at the consistency of the raw protein. When kneading dough or frying eggs, look at the density of the protein around the yolk. If it is pronounced, the egg is fresh, and if it spreads, the egg has been lying for some time.
14. Lemon acid
It turns out that the acidity of the lemon can be determined by the thickness of the zest. Remember the most sour - thin-skinned fruits.
15. Knife handle
To prevent the knife from slipping out of your hands, while cooking, put several stationery rubber bands on its handle.
