7 Kitchen Hacks That Will Change The Way You Cook

You may already be a master in the kitchen, a pro on the stove and a whiz with the oven but these expert hacks promise to sharpen your kitchen skills even more.

1. Make strawberries last longer by packing them in sugar: Thoroughly wash the berries but don’t hull them until after they have been washed. Place a layer of strawberries in a rigid freezer-proof container with a lid. Sprinkle with a heaped tablespoon of caster sugar or around 15 grams. Top with another layer of strawberries and sprinkle with the same amount of sugar. Continue the layers to the top of the container. Don’t tip or shake the container as the sugar will fall to the bottom.



2. Get more flavorful steak: Wrapping your steak in cling film and hanging it in your fridge gives you a more flavorful and tender steak. Some of the moisture evaporates and the beef’s natural enzymes break down the tissue in the steak, leaving you with a tastier piece of meat.


3. Absorb odors in the refrigerator: Try a used tea bag. Once the tea leaves have gotten rid of all their flavor and become porous, they absorb other flavors and smells.

4. Make your bananas last longer: Store your bananas separately, not in a bunch, and they will last up to one week longer.


5. Stop salad leaves going soggy in the fridge: Keep a paper towel with to your salad, as this will soak up any excess moisture and avoid it going soggy.

6. Keep cakes fresh: If you don’t finish your homemade cake that night, keep it moist and fresh overnight by putting a slice of bread on it and enjoy it the next day.


7. Get more juice out of your lemon: Zap it in the microwave for 20 seconds. Fatty acids begin to melt, making the cell membrane more permeable.
