I often get asked for tips for cooking traditional foods gluten free, grocery shopping, kitchen short cuts and any tip that will help people save time, money and eat safely. I thought I would try and pass these along to you on a weekend post. I hope you find these helpful and feel free to add on and share your favorite tips. If you have a question please ask and if I don’t know the answer I’ll try and find it for you.
How many people are hesitant to cook with garlic because they can’t get the smell of garlic off their hands? Here is a sure fire way that works. After you are done peeling or working with the garlic, turn on your faucet to cold and let the water run. Next slap or brush your hands across each other, up and down, under the running cold water. This will knock off the garlic oils from your hands. If you were to use hot water it would allow the garlic oil to seep into your skin even if you are using soap. This is often our instinct. Give it a try and you’ll be surprised that something so simple could work.
