  • MargaretG My brother, who is a farmer, keeps his eggs unrefrigerated and unwashed up to 2 week but that makes me nervous. I usually refrigerated them even unwashed as soon as I get them from the hen. More:...

Looking for some #kitchentips! I've just learned that onions don't last forever (I knew that, but this is still surprising). I was away from home for ~10 days, so my onions weren't given the usual ...

  • Udi What is Dashi?
  • annefood @Udi it's a Japanese broth made from water, kombu (kelp) and bonito flakes (dried tuna). The nice thing is that you can make it without fresh ingredients.

  • JenniferEmilson Yes- while you are waiting for your water to boil, and then drop to a moderate summer, crack your egg onto a small sieve (like you light use for tea) set over a cup. Let it drain all the loose bits...
  • Rachna Oh wow I was stirring like crazy! I'll try this next time. Thanks!

Love hard boiled eggs, but have a hard time taking the shell off. Any good tricks to share with me?

  • sugardetoxme Don't use fresh ones (unfortunately) and shock with cold water right after boiling.

  • akhilg2002 My wife is trying to get us to grow plants at home, so now our Basil plant is a source of extra seasoning on half of our home cooking!
  • Rachna Ginger!! I put it in literally everything from soups, to tea, to fish. I don't have an ice cream maker but if I did, I'd probably make ginger ice cream too ;)
  • marynfulton2 Mmm two of my favorites. What would we do without spices and herbs?! They make life better 😊
