Kitchen secrets/Cooking tips

Blanching vegetables

Vegetables , especially green ones , are often partially cooked in boiling water ( a process called blanching ) to set their color.The blanched vegetables are then "soaked" in ice water to stop the cooking process .Drain the vegetables into a strainer, then plunge the strainer into a bowl of ice water.When the vegetables have cooled, lift the strainer from the ice water and let the water drain back into the bowl.

Green Eating
Going for local

Buying seasonal, local food is a boon for the environment for a lot of reasons. Since most food travels many miles to reach your table (1,500 miles, on average), locally sourced food cuts back on the climate-change impacts of transportation. Local food also generally uses less packaging, is fresher and tastier, and comes in more varieties. It also supports small local growers and lets them get more for their produce by not having to spend so much on packing, processing, refrigeration, marketing, and shipping.

Apple Pie

Little Johnny and his family lived in the country, and as a result seldom had guests. He was eager to help his mother after his father appeared with two dinner guests from the office. When the dinner was nearly over, Little Johnny went to the kitchen and proudly carried in the first piece of apple pie, giving it to his father who passed it to a guest. Little Johnny came in with a second piece of pie and gave it to his father, who again gave it to a guest.This was too much for Little Johnny, who said, "It's no use, Dad. The pieces are all the same size."
