Hints & Tips

Here's an opportunity to pick up a few tips or add a few of your own.
Perhaps they've been passed down through the family or maybe you discovered them yourself.
Feel free to send on your own to us through the contact page with the subject heading Hints and Tips.

· To keep cauliflower white while cooking - add a little milk to the water - it tastes better too!

· Let raw potatoes stand in cold water for at least half an hour before frying to improve the crispness of your chips.

· Mushrooms are truly fresh when the stems and caps are attached snugly.

· A dampened paper towel or terry cloth brushed downward on a cob of corn will remove every strand of corn silk.

· To keep potatoes from budding in store, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

· Instead of the water your recipe calls for, try juices, bouillon, or water you've cooked vegetables in.

· To make lighter and fluffier mashed potatoes, add a pinch or two of baking powder to the potatoes before whipping.

· Add a small amount of lemon juice to the artichoke cooking water to retain the colour of the artichoke.
