Time Saving Tips in the Kitchen

Time Saving Tips in the Kitchen
-After washing greens, pat dry with paper towel.  Place a few dry paper towels in the container to absorb moistures. This will extend the life of your greens.

-Ensure oil when frying is at 365 to 375 degrees.  Use a deep-fat frying thermometer to help take the guesswork out of monitoring the frying temperature. The correct temperature will keep food from sticking and create a better crust.

-When cooking pasta, boil one or two minutes less than recommended.  Finish the pasta in the intended sauce.  ‘This will allow the pasta to absorb the flavor of the sauce.

-Use recipes as a guide to creating your own dishes.  Get creative with flavors and ingredients. 

-Use a hot metal spatula for smoothing frosting.  Dip the frosting spatula in a tall mug of almost boiling water for a couple of seconds and then frost. 

-Use an ice cream scoop to evenly fill cupcake liners.

-When boiling potatoes, always start potatoes in cold water to ensure even cooking.

-Store spices in a cool, dark place away from the stove.

-To remove stains from a wooden cutting board, use salt and a lemon.  Rub for 1-2 minutes and wash. This will make the wooden cutting board look better.

-Use high quality ingredients to obtain a high quality finished product.
