Freeze & Preserve Fresh Herbs in Olive Oil Kitchen Tip #food #preserving #garden
Freeze & Preserve Fresh herbs in Olive Oil - The Gardener's Eden recommends that you freeze some herbs in oil. Why? Preserving herbs in oil reduces some of the browning and freezer burn that herbs can get in the freezer. It's also a great way to have herbs ready immediately for winter stews, roasts, soups, and potato dishes. These dishes usually call for oil to start with, and so you can take a cube of frozen oil, herbs inside, out of the freezer and use . . .
Freeze and preserve fresh herbs in olive oil. We love this idea! You can also freeze herbs in water in ice cube trays, and freeze pesto (without the cheese.)

For a busy cook, caramelized onions pose a conundrum. We love the rich, deeply savory flavor they add to everything from creamy pastas to burgers, but caramelizing onions — truly caramelizing them — requires more time than many of us have for your average weeknight recipe. I have a two part solution: First, make a huge batch and freeze most of it to have on-hand for future meals. Second, get out your slow cooker.

How to Make Buttermilk from Plain Milk with Lemon Juice or Vinegar Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

Make Your Own Buttermilk This recipe calls this a buttermilk "substitute", however, I have talked to several professional chefs who say this is EXACTLY how commercial buttermilk is made, so in my opinion - it's no substitute. I prefer the vinegar over lemon juice option- Give it a couple hard shakes every couple minutes and you won't have any chunks. <<< I will try this with my homemade buttermilk (meaning uncultured milk that is leftover after making butter.)

The Best Way to Quickly & Safely Thaw Frozen Meat

The Best Way to Quickly & Safely Thaw Frozen Meat | You can also place the meat in a bowl and fill with water, then place the bowl in the microwave. Nuke on high for 2-3 minutes (depending on the amount of water), just enough to get the water hot, but not boiling (you might need to empty the water and do it once more for really thick cuts). It will quickly thaw your meat and it won't start to cook on the outside as the water acts as a temperature buffer.
I do my best to plan ahead and let meat thaw slowly in the fridge. But sometimes the mood for a certain dish strikes or company drops by, and I just need to get a frozen chicken breast or a few steaks thawed, pronto! When this happens, here's what I do to get that meat skillet-ready quickly and safely.
