simple cooking tips

put sugar in the saucepan first before adding cold milk when making custard...the pan will not burn as near as quick..simple but true.

add a wee bit of cream to mashed carrots and parsnips.lovely.

when making poached egg.make sure to stir the simmering water to give it a turnhole effect just prior to putting the egg in.the egg will stay tighter together.

when chopping fruit for fruit salad add a bit of fresh lemon juice to the liquid for both taste and also to stop the fruit going black

over to you guys now

Re: simple cooking tips

When mashing potatoes, as well as butter, add hot milk for a very creamy smooth mash.

Re: simple cooking tips

perfect hard boiled egg.place in to boiling water and cook 12 minutes exactly.any longer and yolk will turn black green.when boiled run under cold water to stop cooking process if using for salad or egg mayo

boiled rice.cook and then run rice under cold water till cold.reheat in microwave.this stops rice sticking together like a rock

grilling tomatoes.sprinkle some lee and perrins sauce over tomatoes prior to grilling

breading fish.add lemon juice to beaten egg mixture to add a zing to if.or if battering add juis to batter mix

Re: simple cooking tips

Been a Paddy I love my spuds, but has anyone any tips for roasting them and getting them nice and crispy.
Normally I roast them in very hot corn oil with a scattering of herbs.


God I am a sad case!

Re: simple cooking tips

Always add alcohol to your cooking at the end of the process, so as not to lose the taste. Oh and pour a glass for yourself too.

Re: simple cooking tips

..slightly of thread, but if you burn yourself ,and have a raw tomato at hand, slice open and rub over the burn ,it will also stop any blistering ..learnt that from the filipinos..

half boil the potatoes.scrape them with a fork to get a kind of rough/floury coating.heat a little duckfat in a pan.coat the spuds in the fat and finish off in a hot oven for about 20-30 minutes

another good way for appearance sake re the roast spud. get the raw potato slice it almost through in about half a dozen places.again coat in duckfat.place in oven 45 minutes.looks great when put on plate coated in paprika pepper.practically already portioned for you.

Re: simple cooking tips

Before chopping an onion, peel the outer skin and then run cold water from the tap over the onion. You eyes won't water half as much or not at all.
