Some Tips

Been reading my book and thought of sharing some of the tips here:
  1. If you store ice cubes in polythene bags, spray them with soda water before you put them in the freezer. It stops them from sticking together.
  2. A good substitute for real cream is evaporated milk. Boil an unopened tin in water for twenty minutes. It whips up to double its size and does a fair immitation of the real thing.
  3. If you line the salad drawer with kitchen paper before you put your fruit in it, any excess moisture is drawn into the paper and the fruit stays fresher longer.
  4. If you are making soups to freeze, use half the liquid the recipe calls for. Add the rest when you defrost it.
  5. If you are making a beef casserole, add a teaspoonful of vinegar to the recipe. It makes the meat more tender and brings out the flavour in the gravy.

More to come, guys. :)
