More Kitchen Hints

To avoid a “weeping” meringue, add a teaspoon of cornstarch to the sugar before beating it into the egg whites.

To remove skins from almonds, place them in boiling water for a couple of minutes. The skins can then be easily removed.

 Place a couple of slices of bacon in the bottom of the pan when baking a meat loaf. The bacon provides a tasty addition to the dish, and also helps the loaf slide easily out of the pan.

Thaw fish in a little milk because it enhances the flavor.
