Cool as a Cucumber………

When storing a cucumber, keep it away from apples and tomatoes, which will shorten its life. Cucumbers stay fresh for up to a week, when the water content starts to drop.

Grab the paper towel……..

It is always a good idea to line the crisper bins of your refrigerator with a few paper towels or sheets of newspaper to absorb excess moisture. Mold spores love moisture, but the towels will keep it away.

Sugar Snap Peas…………

One of the most notable health benefits of sugar snap peas is they are high in vitamin C. This water-soluble, antioxidant vitamin speeds wound healing, boosts immunity and also aids in the production of collagen. Sugar snap peas contain 60 milligrams per 100-gram serving.

Since they’re naturally sweet and tasty, including more sugar snap peas in your diet can be as easy as grabbing a bowl full to eat on their own. They also pair well with healthy dips, from garlicky hummus to a creamy-but-nutritious eggplant-based baba ganoush.

Using Whole Wheat Pasta……….

* Whole-wheat pasta usually requires more cooking time than regular pasta, but don’t overcook it! Whole-wheat pasta quickly loses its texture if overcooked, so follow package directions carefully. Get your kitchen timer out and use it.
* Toss it with pesto or dark, leafy greens like Swiss chard for an earthy, herbal flavor that goes perfectly with whole wheat pasta.
* Make a cold pasta salad with plenty of olive oil and a splash of rice vinegar or squeeze of lemon juice to lighten it up.
* You may eat a little less pasta than you normally would. The whole-wheat and higher- fiber pastas seem to be more satisfying.

When canning………..

Thank you Mom for this hint! – Never set jars directly on the bottom of the canner; they will burst. Always use the wire rack that comes with the canner.

No need to baste that Bird………

Basting means more oven door opening, resulting in temperature fluctuations that can dry out your bird. Instead, keep your turkey moist by brining it or by rubbing it all over with butter or oil.

Layer the ingredients…….

When using your slow cooker – For even cooking, cut food into uniform-size pieces. Place firm, slow-cooking root vegetables like potatoes and carrots at the bottom of the crock and pile the meat on top.
