We’ve put together a list of genius food hacks that will have you questioning how on earth you’ve done life until this moment. Yeah, I scratched my head through a few of these too.
Mash potatoes with a handmixer
Yeah I know, it’s a simple solution. But why have I been putting my back into it all these years?
Grate cold butter
Use a cheese grater to soften solid butter. This is an epic solution especially in Winter when you almost have to have a fight with your knife to get a descent spread.
Use an ice-cream scoop to mould meatballs
So turns out I’ve been getting my hands all messy for absolutely no reason at all. Any one else feel ma pain?
Non-stick your spoons
When scooping up syrups and honey, first dip your spoon in hot water to avoid the substance sticking to the spoon. This is the part where I’m like…but what am I meant to lick off the spoon then?
Seperate onions and potatoes
Both potatoes and onions release gases and moisture that will cause the other to go bad easily. (Did not know this).
Easy peel potatoes
If you have many potatoes to peel, score the potato across the middle (the skin) and place it in a pot to boil. The skins will peel off post boiling. Watch how.
