Pull Herbs Through Grater
This is a fast way to separate herb leaves from their stems. Poke the bottom end of the fresh herb stem in a hole on a grater, then pull on the stem. The herb leaves will be saved on top, while the stems gather on the work surface. Use the smaller grater holes for smaller stems. This is great for fresh herbs like parsley that are time consuming to separate.
Seasoning Your Recipes
Whenever I am making a soup, stew, sauce or anything that will need many seasonings, I use the method I pictured below! When I am done I can check that I have used everything I needed for my recipe. It really keeps things organized.
Salt and Pepper Shakers Working Together
I saw this tip on the internet and would have never guessed it. The bottoms of the salt and pepper shakers have a rough edge which can be used to get the salt and pepper out with little effort. For pepper, just gently rub the bottom of the salt shaker against the bottom of the pepper shaker and watch what happens.
Turmeric has many health uses. It has been used like an antibiotic for thousands of years. I add oil, such as coconut oil, and a dash of black pepper to enhance the absorption of the turmeric benefits. I also add a dash of turmeric in my white rice to make it look like yellow rice.
