Cooking can be enjoyable and relaxing if you try to see it in another way. Here are a few cooking tips that are sure to get your taste buds tingling and entice your inner chef to come out.
One thing that you can do is to bake a pie or tart crust longer to optimize quality. Wait until the crust turns golden rather than pale blond. This golden color means that the sugar has caramelized, leaving a sweet flavor.
Store your spices in a cool, dark place. Spices will last longer when they are not exposed to warm temperatures and moist air. If you store your spices in dark place with relatively low temperatures like a pantry, the spices will retain their taste and take longer to spoil. Keeping your spices fresh can improve the taste of every recipe you prepare.
Certain methods of preparing vegetables, such as boiling, can reduce their nutrients, due to the length of cooking time. For the most nutritious veggies, cook them quickly by steaming or sauteing, or just eat them raw.
A lot of people usually use apples for cooking things in the winter and fall months, yet a lot of people store them incorrectly and they spoil quickly. Apples keep best when they are stored in a cool location where there is plenty of air circulation. But remember that one bad apple really does spoil the bunch; check on them regularly.
