This is probably one of my biggest pet peeves in the industry and I hope on Food Recovery Lobby Day on Apr 4, 2016 we address this issue. "My father used to keep food in the ref...
  • Rachna i think people just need to learn how to smell milk - e.g. get to know their food a bit more.
  • annefood Yes this is so ridiculous. @unconventionalbaker @JenniferEmilson and I were talking about this last week, and I suggested that there either needs to be a federal regulation as this article...
  • JenniferEmilson Sell by dates and Best by dates are purely for the retailer's benefit. Common sense needs to be taught as well. I was intrigued by this conversation last week. And like @rachna said, Use your nose....

How to eat an Avocado seed

"I had no idea!"
Sauté chopped anchovies in the pan before starting a tomato sauce. They and saltiness and omega-3s.

And when the sauce is done you won't even know they're there! #kitchentips #tipoftheday
  • Riki Wow, what a strange but interesting idea !
    Keeping in mind that my husband hates anchovies, or at least, believes he does
    If in fact the anchovy flavor won t be apparent , May be it's worth a try 😅
  • annefood I would love to hear if he notices @Riki ! It's great in a tomato sauce with onions, olive oil and herbs. That might be the best way to sneak it in as those are stronger flavors. Only use 2 or 3...

Broth adds so much more flavor to grains than water does! I served fresh red snapper, green salad and tangy Meyer lemon salsa with the rich quinoa, and it balanced the dish perfectly. #kitchentips
  • JenniferEmilson Unless it's for breakfast I try to cook all grains in broth. My mom taught me that one!! You're right, it ups the depth and creaminess of grains, whether rice, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, etc
  • annefood I've never cooked buckwheat @JenniferEmilson, only the flour! I should try that.
  • gingerandchorizo I agree with @JenniferEmilson! And I am just posting a new salad recipe here with roasted buckwheat which is also cooked in veggie broth :)

For delicious kale chips, just toss chopped kale with olive oil, sea salt and pepper, and roast at 350 for about 10 minutes, checking often. #kitchentips
Avocado kept fresh
3yr
I recently found an easy way to store half / part of an avocado from turning brown .
Simply cover it in plastic wrap ( in a nicely sealed air tight manner ) and place in the fridge.
  • Rachna Yes! Also storing it with the pit and in lemon juice also works! #kitchentips
  • Yfalkson Pretty sure I heard the pit part is actually a myth. I think Kenji Lopez from The Foodlab tested it
  • Rachna Really?! Oof I'll give it a try sans the lemon juice. I always use both and it seems to work, but a true scientist would say only test one variable at a time :)

  • 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!
  • marynfulton2 Add a little vinegar to your water! It helps the egg stay together as well 😊
