Storing Mushrooms………

You can use the original packaging from the store, because those cases are generally designed to allow for some air flow. You can also place mushrooms in a paper bag; just be sure to leave the top open. And that’s it! Pop the mushrooms in your fridge, unwashed, and be sure to use those mushrooms quickly.

Oh Nuts……….

Eating nuts on a regular basis may improve your health in many ways, such as by reducing diabetes and heart disease risk, as well as cholesterol and triglyceride levels. This nutritious high-fiber treat may even aid weight loss — despite its high calorie count. Almonds, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts and pecans also appear to be quite heart healthy. And peanuts — which are technically not a nut, but a legume, like beans — seem to be relatively healthy.

When using Peppers……

When cooking with chili peppers, protect your hands and eyes by wearing rubber gloves. Or coat your hands in vegetable oil and wash them with soap and water immediately after handling.

Buying Blackberries……….

Choose deeply colored, glossy berries that show no signs of having been crushed or bruised. As with all berries, check for mold before buying. Look for bright, uniform color; pass on darkened, dull berries.

It is best to store your blueberries in the fridge and wash just prior to eating. Berries are delicate and very perishable. If you wash them first and plan to store them for a long period of time in the refrigerator they can start to break down faster. Blueberries should last a week and a half or more!

Storing Strawberries………..

Remove the berries from their original container, and store them whole and unwashed in a partially-closed container lined with paper towels to absorb any excess moisture, preferably in a single layer so they don’t get crushed. They should last up to five to seven days.

Storing Tomatoes………

Ripe tomatoes should be kept at on your counter, uncovered, if you are going to enjoy the tomato in the next day or two. But any longer than that – the recommendation is to refrigerate. A so-so tomato is much better than a rotten, moldy tomato. Refrigeration will slow down the decay.

Gas vs. Charcoal…….

The age-old debate over which grilling method is “better” involves multiple variables, from flavor to cost to convenience. While no studies prove that either is healthier, gas does burn cleaner. Charcoal grills emit more carbon monoxide, particulate matter and soot into the atmosphere, contributing to increased pollution and higher concentrations of ground-level ozone. From a taste perspective, on the other hand, many people prefer the smokier, richer taste of food cooked on a charcoal grill. Either way, Fire That Grill Up!

Love that Bison (Buffalo)…………………..

Bison is leaner than beef and may be a healthier choice if you’re looking to reduce your calorie or fat intake. It has nearly 25% fewer calories than beef and is lower in total and saturated fat ( 2 , 3 ). Additionally, due to its lower fat content, bison has finer fat marbling, yielding softer and more tender meat.

Grilling Chicken………

Searing meat gives beautiful grill marks and adds that mouthwatering barbecue char to chicken. The key to a good sear is dry meat and a hot grill. First, pat the chicken skin with a paper towel to take out as much moisture as possible. A super-hot grill allows the chicken to get a good sear and is less likely to stick. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Clean and lightly oil hot grates. When ready, place the chicken on the grill (if using skin-on chicken, place skin side down on grill). Grill chicken, without turning, 6 to 10 minutes for boneless chicken and 10 to 14 minutes for bone-in. When it’s finished cooking, just like a good steak, chicken needs to rest.

Freezing meat…………

Wrap meats very tightly in either plastic wrap or freezer paper, pressing the wrapping right up against the surface of the meat. Next, wrap another layer of aluminum foil around the meat or seal it inside a zip-top freezer bag. Packaged like this, meat can be kept frozen for at least three months. Also remember a full freezer is more economical to run as the cold air doesn’t need to circulate as much, so less power is needed.
