You may look good with a tan, but your guacamole sure doesn’t! To keep the avocados from oxidizing (which causes the brown color), cut them with a silver or stainless steel knife, and leave the pit in the dip (until serving). Sprinkle lemon or lime juice on the surface of the dip, and cover tightly with plastic wrap until you’re ready to eat.

To lessen your cleanup time when using a food processor, protect the lid by first covering the bowl of food with a piece of plastic wrap. The lid will stay clean and you can toss the plastic wrap in the trash when you’re finished.

Where you store butter will affect how long it lasts. It will keep for around six months in the freezer, but if you’re storing it in the fridge, it will start to lose its flavor after three weeks. Butter tends to absorb odors and flavors more rapidly than other foods, so make sure ti wrap it in a few layers of plastic wrap or foil before storing, especially in the freezer.

Raisins will last for several months if they are wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or a plastic bag and kept at room temperature. They will last even longer (up to a year) if you place the plastic bag in the refrigerator.

When you freeze foods, evaporation continues and fluids are lost. The entire surface of meat must be protected from the process with a moisture – resistant wrap. The best way to wrap meats for freezing is in plastic wrap covered by a protective freezer paper or aluminum foil. This will not eliminate evaporation entirely, but it will reduce the risk of oxidation and rancidity.

Although it may be tempting for health reasons, never omit the salt from your bread recipe. Salt strengthens and tightens the gluten, keeping bread from becoming crumbly.

The next time you get chopsticks with your Chinese take-out, keep a few for your kitchen. Even if you haven’t mastered the art of eating with them, they’re perfect for leveling off cups of flour and other dry goods.

Rock- hard marshmallows don’t have to be thrown out. You can soften them up in a resealable plastic bag placed on top of warm water. Now go get that grill fired up again.

To keep your cooler fresh and odor free, throw in 10-15 charcoal briquettes, close the top, and leave it overnight. In the morning, clean the cooler with soapy water, and it will smell like new.

When grilling shrimp, always thread them onto the skewers lengthwise, so they won’t curl on the grill. They’ll also be less likely to fall into the fire.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
