  • Udi I heard that eggs in the US get cleaned in such a way that the protective coating on the outside gets stripped off and that's why we have to refrigerate them. But, freshly laid ones, I think you...
  • 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:...
  • JenniferEmilson I've kept mine out for a week with no problem. So far!

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 ...
  • sugardetoxme You can regrow the onion by planting it and even harvest the onion greens!

  • 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 😊

Who is a dashi fan? I've never made it, but imagine it would indeed be a great stand-in for veggie stock. I always used the box kind (except for Thanksgiving when I make my own) and don't mind it a...
  • 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.
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 😊
