DailyDirt: Simple Kitchen Techniques

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Some people freely admit that they have trouble boiling water when it comes to cooking techniques. But some seemingly simple tasks aren’t so easy to do if your standards are set high enough. The proliferation of cooking shows doesn’t quite help because every TV chef has his/her own way of creating the same dish — so there’s no consistent method. Here are just a few examples of some “easy dishes” to prepare.

If you’d like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

Need citrus juice?

If you need citrus juice out of an actual citrus fruit as opposed to out of a bottle, dramatically increase your yield with a couple tricks.

Roll it on a counter first, and then pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds (watch for hot spots). Cut, juice, and see a lot more juice to use.

I was in culinary school with a girl who missed the step about cutting and juicing a lemon. She was literally just rolling it on the counter as hard as she could, and she was getting super frustrated before someone walked by and noticed.

“What are you doing?”
“I’m TRYING to juice this lemon!”
“Um… I think the inside is probably broken up enough now, you can probably cut it and juice it now.”
Lemon girl did not complete the program.

So as long as you remember to cut it and juice it, you’re good. (Careful with the rolling too. I squeezed a blood orange between my two hands once and it burst all over my chef coat.)
