Did you know that…
…you can keep apple slices from browning after peeling them byletting them sit in water with a little bit of lemon juice. Drain well before serving.
…whole tomatoes can be washed and frozen in containers or plastic bags. When you are ready to use simply thaw and the skin will slip right off and they are ready to be used in cooking.
…fresh herbs will keep fresh longer if you wrap them in a slightly damp paper towel then seal in an airtight plastic bag. Store them in the refrigerator.
…salty tastes in gravies, soups, stews etc., can be eliminated by dropping a piece of raw potato into the liquid for a few minutes before removing from the stove. The potato will absorb all the salt.
