These are all everyday simple cooking tips that you could use to make life easier in the kitchen.

Increase juice extraction from lemons and oranges.
If your recipe requires juice from a lemon or orange and you think you are going to be short on quantity give it a blast in the microwave for twenty seconds on max heat before you squeeze. Works especially well if the fruit is old and past its best condition.

Keep the fresh look of boiled vegetables.
To keep the fresh look of boiled vegetables by adding a small knob of butter or small drop of olive oil when cooking. This will also help prevent them boiling over while cooking.

Freshen up stale rolls and bread.
If you want to use rolls or bread that has gone a bit stale, cook in the microwave for thirty seconds with a cup of water will work wonders.

If stew or soup is a bit too salty.
My Mother suggested long ago that if I had cooking trouble with salty stews and soups that the addition of a cut up large raw potato would make salty stew more palatable by absorbing the excess salt. Remove before serving.

Make rice free flowing when served.
Always sprinkle in when introducing it into boiled water at the start of cooking. When you sieve at the end of cooking rinse through while it is in the sieve with a recently pre-boiled kettle of boiling water.

Keep your salt free flowing.
If you have problems with you salt cellar clogging then add 10 or 12 grains of uncooked rice. You will be amazed at the results.

Don't keep your bananas in your fruit bowl.
Don't keep your Bananas in your fruit bowl because for some reason it makes the rest of your fruit in the bowl go off quicker.

Onions with less tears.
If you leave peeling the root end of the onion until last then you will shed less tears.

If a main dish is to sweet.
A tea spoon of wine or cider vinegar can take the edge off a sweet main or vegetable dish.

Trouble with whipping cream.
Place bowl, beater and cream in the fridge until well chilled then try whipping. In addition you can place the bowl you are whipping in, in a larger one containing crushed ice and water.

Crisp limp lettuce.
Apparently so my mother tells me lettuce and celery will crisp up if you place it in a bowl of iced water with a chopped raw potatoes.

Prevent chopped fruit going brown.
Chopped fruit sprinkled with lemon juice will not go brown while waiting to be served.
