Most of us have a kitchen tip or two up our sleeves that we share with everyone we know. Like how to boil the perfect hard-boiled egg…or how about stuffing a mini marshmallow at the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent drips (love that one!). Kitchen tips are meant to be shared, so Family Kitchen want to share these useful (and maybe not so useful?) kitchen tips with you.

How to Ripen an Avocado

Don't you hate it when you are craving guacamole and your store's selection of avocados are all hard and unripe? Well according the avocado people themselves, you can speed up the process by placing that rock hard avocado into a brown paper bag along with an apple or banana for a couple of days. That's if you can wait that long and don't just drive to another store first.

    Those are some great tips! I wonder if the rice would work in other spices that clump too.

    So what’s the trick for this one? “Avoid Tomato Sauce Stains in you Tupperware”

    Anyhow sun takes the stains away. Place the tomato stained tupper in the sun for a couple of hours and they will be gone.

    Sim, thanks so much for letting me know I left out a part of that one! I updated the slide, it’s said that spraying your Tupperware with nonstick spray will help avoid red sauce stains. I like your your tip too! thanks again!

    How about don’t put the bananas in the fruit bowl? Bananas will just overripen all fruit (Apples, too) Lots of fruits should be on a flat surface so that the gases they put off don’t get trapped by them.

    I do that with strawberries too – wash up the ones that are good if they are starting to go, cut off their tops and freeze them. Chuck them in with smoothies, no ice required :)
