Go From Gross To Gourmet With These Cooking Tips
While everyone can eat, not everyone know how to cook. The following article will give you the information you need to be able to prepare meals with ease. Do not allow yourself to be intimidated by the idea of preparing a fine meal with a variety of ingredients. Cooking is a priceless skill and can be a great source of joy. You should have fun with these tips and should not worry about making an exquisite mess in your kitchen every so often.
A cool area is the best place for you to keep your spices for maximum freshness and taste. If your spices are exposed to moisture, heat, or light they may lose their flavor. Generally, ground herbs and spices stay fresh for around a year, after that they begin to lose their flavor. You may retain your spice’s flavor for about 5 years. You must store them correctly in order to maintain their freshness.
There is a great trick to thicken up your sauce so it isn’t wasted. In a small bowl, combine two tablespoons of water and 3 teaspoons of corn starch. Slowly add this mixture to your simmering sauce to thicken it up. Try to incorporate it slowly so that you do not make it too thick.
A sharp knife is imperative when preparing food. If you try to cut using a dull knife, you will have a lot of difficulty, and it can also a very dangerous. If you’re trying to slice a firm vegetable with a blunted knife, you’re more likely to cut yourself with it than you are if you use a sharp knife.
