Thank you to Ellie V. for passing this hint along……..

Next time you’re using Tomatoes – Peel tomatoes with ease! Cut an X in the top, and then simmer in a pot of hot water for 15 to 30 seconds. Cool down and the skin will fall right off.

When buying fresh Shrimp………

Avoid shrimp that smells of anything other than salt water. If there is any hint of the aroma of ammonia, it is a sign the shrimp is way past its prime. Truly fresh shrimp will have almost translucent flesh. Do not buy shrimp with black spots or rings (unless it’s black tiger shrimp) as this indicates the meat is starting to break down. Also avoid pink meat.

When buying Cauliflower…….

When purchasing cauliflower, look for a clean, creamy white, compact curd in which the bud clusters are not separated. Spotted or dull-colored cauliflower should be avoided, as well as those in which small flowers appear. Heads that are surrounded by many thick green leaves are better protected and will be fresher. As its size is not related to its quality, choose one that best suits your needs.

Green Onions…………

Green Onions last longer in the fridge if you take off the elastic ban and store them loosely in a plastic bag.

Did you know how healthy Green Onions are?
* Support immune health.
* regulate blood sugar.
* Are anti-inflammatory.
* Prevent cancer — The cancer-preventing phytonutrient in onions is called quercetin.
* Protect us from peptic ulcers by inhibiting the growth of a bacteria that attacks the stomach lining.

My favorite – Mushrooms………

Mushrooms are packed with nutritional value. They’re low in calories, are great sources of fiber and protein (good for plant-based diets). They also provide many important nutrients, including B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper, and (particularly when exposed to the sun) vitamin D.

Cooking Fish and Seafood……….

Don’t slice that yet…………

If you slice into meat right after it finishes cooking, precious juices will escape. Wait 5 minutes before biting into burgers or grilled chicken, 7 minutes before cutting into steaks, and 15 minutes before carving a large roast.
