FOODtips of the Day!

Every so often I come across some tips, cheats and helpful ideas that I feel are worth saving as you never know when you might need them.  Here are the latest:

Add a spoonful of custard powder to fruit pie pastry and the result will be a golden yellow pastry!

Slice an onion thinly and freeze in plastic bags. Using a rolling pin on the frozen slices in their bags breaks them into small pieces, just as if they had been finely diced!

Half a chicken stock cube, dissolved in hot milk gives a lovely flavour to mashed potatoes!
