Viralabuzz loves adding a little twist to our cooking process, and we are ready to lift the curtain on this exciting world of cooking for you too. Make sure you save all of these tips!
1. Peel tomatoes the fast and easy way.
The most popular way to peel tomatoes is to put them in hot water for a couple of seconds. However, there is an even faster way to do this — simply pick up a tomato on a fork and hold it over a hot burner. Make sure you hold it about 10 cm above the flame.
2. Protect your hands while cutting hot peppers.
Instead of using gloves while cutting hot peppers, you can use a more eco-friendly option — vegetable or olive oil. Before the process, pour a teaspoon of it on your hands and rub it in. The oil will create a thick barrier so the pepper won’t damage your skin.
3. Use lettuce leaves to preserve your avocados.
Lettuce leaves can be used as an eco-friendly wrap. An open avocado can just be wrapped in one and can stay in the fridge for up to one week, retaining its freshness and moisture.
