Keep the Bread out………

Bread gets that stale taste not when it dries out but when it absorbs moisture, which causes its starch granules to form hard crystals. So keep your loaf out of the humid fridge and store it in a cool, dry place, like your counter top or bread box. Freezing the bread is okay too as it slows the crystallization process. The fresher the better!

Time saver……..

Save time – Cook dried beans in a slow cooker overnight. Want an easy way to cook beans from scratch? Place dried beans (soaked or not) in a slow cooker, cover with about 4 inches of water, and place the slow cooker on low before you go to bed for the night. By the time you wake up, you’ll have a batch of cooked beans ready to be eaten in soups, salads, or even frozen for later use. So make plenty!

My favorite Apple, Honeycrisp……….

The health benefits from eating apples are numerous. One medium Honeycrisp apple has 5 grams of fiber and only 80 calories. Because of the amount and type of fiber, an apple will help a person feel full longer, helping him or her to consume fewer calories daily. The pectin in apples may also help lower cholesterol. And they’re delicious!

Freeze the meat…….

To easily slice meat or poultry, partially freeze it beforehand and your knife will glide right through.

Herbs…………

Crushing dried herbs before using them will boost their flavor, as will soaking them for a few seconds in hot water. This technique also works well with dried herbs that have lost their flavor.

Lighten up………….

When making a batter for deep frying, try adding 1/2 teaspoon baking powder for every 1/2 cup flour. The coating will be lighter

Orange you glad……..

A cleaning hint for the oven – A self-cleaning oven can leave an odor after its done. Eliminate the lingering smell by turning down the oven to 350 degrees when it’s finished cleaning, then putting orange peels on a baking sheet inside. Cook the peels for a half an hour, and not only will the oven smell fresh, but your whole kitchen will also.

Deli tip…..

Next time you’re buying lunchmeat at the deli counter ask them if they give discounts for bulk ends of meat. These are the end bits that are to small to slice in the machine, but can be sliced or cubed at home. They’re often offered at half off.

Lemons………

Lemons will stay fresh for up to three months if you store them in a bowl of water in the fridge. Just change the water every week.

Save the bananas……..

Never throw out overripe bananas. Stick them in the freezer once they get completely brown, and you can still use them later for banana bread and other baking projects.
