Do you rue about not having woken up earlier or not having an extra pair of hands everyday morning when you work in the kitchen? Do you skip preparing meals at home because you don’t have the time for it? If yes don’t worry! You are one among millions who think along these lines. So, here are 30 simple, time-saving kitchen hacks that will help you save a lot of time and effort.
1. Prevent browning of cut fruits
After you have cut certain fruits such as apples, apply a mixture made of honey and water (in the ration 1:2) over the slices. This way, you can cut the apples tonight and save time tomorrow morning, without worrying about the browning of the slices.
2. Remove excess fats from foods
If you are health- conscious and want to take out the unnecessary fats from your soups, stocks or other dishes, follow this simple trick. Wrap a few ice cubes in a towel and skim it over the dish. This will help the solidification of the fats. Once they solidify, you can easily remove it with a spoon.
3. Peeling citrus fruits easily
Is there a lot of mess around you when you peel citrus fruits? To avoid that, all you need to do is to roll the fruit a few times or microwave it for a minute. The skin comes off easily after that, leaving you with a lot of time.
4. Remove eggshells easier
Do you want to remove the shells from the eggs easily without having to spoil your eggs? Add a spoon of baking soda or vinegar into the water when you are boiling eggs to see the difference for yourself.
5. Grate cheese easily
If you want to grate cheese for your breakfast tomorrow, you need to ensure that you freeze the mozzarella or fontina cheese for about 30 minutes. Work on your other dishes and come back after half an hour to take out this cheese and grate it easily like a professional.
