You’re never too old to learn something new in the kitchen, and you don’t have to be Gordon Ramsay or Rachael Ray to do well in the culinary category. Sometimes, you just need some innovative food hacks to make meals unique, to prevent ingredients from spoiling, and to explore new, better ways to prepare dishes. So here are 10 food hacks that will totally make a difference in the kitchen.
Spoon Your Ginger
Use a spoon next time you want to peel ginger. It’s so much easier than using a peeler. Plus, you won’t be risking the skin on your fingers or your sanity while trying to peel that ginger root down to size.
Shake And Peel
Place your boiled eggs in a container. Then add water, close the lid, and shake. Once you’re done, you’ll find that peeling your egg is so much easier. Plus, shaking that container may help relieve your pent-up stress.
Revive Stale Bread
If you have a loaf of stale bread, don’t toss it—unless it’s moldy. Just place the loaf in a pan, cover with water, and bake it for eight minutes at 325 degrees F, and voila! Your bread has come back to life!
Whipped Cream In A Jar
Add a cup of heavy cream, 1 tsp of vanilla, and 1 tbsp of confectioners’ sugar to a jar. Then shake it vigorously. You can twerk while you shake. We won’t judge, you multi-tasker, you! Then you’ll have 30-second whipped cream!
