When we learn to cook we try to remember some simple skills which will allow us to cook anything. Sometimes, it is worth looking at your cooking habits from a different point of view. People who have made cooking their life have some simple tips and tricks on how to make your life easier. Let’s look at those cooking hacks that everyone should use!
1. Oversalted soup
One of the simplest ways to undo over salting is to insert dry rice wrapped in a cheese cloth into the soup. This will absorb excess salt and make your soup taste great again. Alternatively, you can put a raw potato in your soup. Just don’t forget to get it out as it might change the taste of your soup creation.
2. Tough beef
If you don’t like tough beef marinate it in mayonnaise to make it softer. While it may seem strange, it will not be damaging to the taste of the meat. Avoid using vinegar or lemon as it will change the taste completely.
3. Dish taste
If you are worried that your dish will lose its taste and richness before it is served, make sure that you serve hot dishes on hot plates and cold dishes on cold plates. This will allow you to present the taste in the very best way.
4. Separate egg yolk and white
While there are many gadgets on the market for this task, one of the best ways is to use the egg shell itself. If you are worried that you may be clumsy, using a small water bottle will do the trick. With a bit of practice you will do it in seconds!
5. Perfect mash potatoes
To make the perfect mash taters (not only by taste but also by presentation) consider adding ingredients of the same temperature. While butter will easily melt, milk will need to warm (or even be heated) to give the mash a rich color.
