¨ Peel ginger with a spoon—Ginger can be tricky to peel with all its bumps and irregularities. Rather than using a paring knife or vegetable peeler, reach for the spoon. Scrape it against the skin and it’ll come right off, following every contour and minimizing waste.
¨ Use egg shells to remove egg shells—The empty half of an egg shell is the best tool to extract stubborn bits of cracked shells that have ended up in the bowl.
¨ Store herbs in a paper towel—You can extend the lifespan of washed herbs by several days by rolling them up in damp paper towels and placing them in zipper-lock bags with the seals left slightly open.
