Chopping up herbs
Bunch up your herbs, it makes them easier to chop.
Quickly ripen fruit
If you have fruit that still hasn’t quite ripened, throw it into a brown paper bag along with a banana and set it in a dark place.
Peel & cut a mango
Slice into a mango and cut it up into squares along the skin. Then, bend the mango and cut out the even squares.
Getting rid of the heat of chillies from your finger
If you’re working with chillies, you’re not gonna want to touch your eyes anytime soon. The trick is to squirt lemon juice in your hands to get rid of that heat.
Start off your potatoes in cold water, not hot. When they cook, the outer skin won’t fall apart.
Peeling a kiwi
Cut the kiwi in half and scoop it out with a teaspoon.
Cutting a bell pepper
Cut off the stalk and flip it over. Start from the top (formerly the bottom) and start slicing around the seeds. It makes the remaining pieces much easier to cut up.
Finding a ripe pineapple
Peel a leaf from the top of your questionable pineapple. If it comes off easily, it’s ripe.
Cooking meat faster
If you score meat, cutting multiple inch-deep gashes into the flesh, you’ll allow it to cook faster. It’ll also let the marinade sink deeper.
Keeping food from going brown
Cover your potatoes, avocados and apples in water and add some lemon. It’ll stop the oxidation process that causes them to turn brown.
