Cooking Advice That Can Be Applied Anytime
Cooking is a skill anyone can learn over time. It doesn’t matter why you want to improve your culinary skills, the important fact is that you want to start now! Here are a few hints that will set you in the right culinary direction in your own home kitchen.
Try to keep your spices and herbs in a dark, cool area of your kitchen. Humidity, light and heat can cause your spices and herbs to lose their flavor. Ground spices typically maintain their flavor for around a year. If spices are kept whole, they could stay fresh for up to five years. If you keep them correctly, they will last a lot longer.
Slice your meat very thinly for stir-fry dishes. It can be difficult to slice the meat, and it takes some time. You should take the meat out when it reaches a firm state yet not frozen, and slice across the grain at an angle of 45 degrees.
Don’t throw away that runny sauce, as there is an easy fix available. Take one tablespoon corn starch, and combine with two tablespoons water in a mixing bowl. Stir the mixture into a warm thin sauce to thicken it. For sauce that is too thick, add liquid until your sauce is at the desired consistency.
When you season a piece of meat, try it out before you start to cook it all. Foods such as meatballs, meatloaf and hamburgers too all require delicate seasoning. Never prepare the full amount after its initial seasoning. Cook a bit of the mixture before you continue to cook the entire batch to ensure that the seasonings are correct. You can then cook the entire piece, or change the seasoning as needed.
By now you are hopefully chomping at the bit to get started. Use what you read above to help you make excellent food! No matter your reason for wanting to improve as a cook, you are sure to appreciate cooking and serving your own food. Cooking good food does require skill and effort. The resulting meal will make it all worth it in the end.
