Fix frozen orange juice without the fuzz
Stir frozen lumps first. To save time combine juice and water the night before, then refrigerate. In the morning, just shake and serve.
Keep corn on the cob fresh
Ideally, cook it right away. But some cooks make the taste last an extra day: cut pieces off basis; stand with husks, in a pan of water.
Bake brownies that are perfectly fudgy
Try this trick: five or ten minutes before the baking time is up, check the edges. If they are shrinking away from the pan, remove immediately from the oven.
Loosen stuck plastic wrap
Don’t use a knife. To loosen the stuck edge, wrap a piece of tape –sticky side out- around your index finger, then circle the roll with it until the edge lifts up. To foil future foul-ups, store the role of plastic wrap in the freezer.
Keep eggs and milk fresh longer
Keep eggs in the original container on a shelf of the refrigerator, where they’ll stay fresh for up to five weeks; don’t use the egg tray in your refrigerator door – it’s the warmest spot in the fridge. Milk tastes fresher longer if it not exposed to light, which prompts an off flavor, says the National Dairy Council. So keep it in a carton, not in a glass pitcher.
Avoid watery drinks
Don’t dilute your cold summer drinks with melting ice: Fill your ice-cube trays with the beverage itself.
Cook bacon without splattering
Separate the bacon slices and place them between double thickness paper towels in a microwave safe dish. Then cook on high as follows: 2 slices, 2 ¼ to 2 ¾ minutes; 4 slices, 4 to 4 ½ minutes; 6 slices, 5 ½ to 6 ½ minutes. Rotate the dish halfway through cooking.
