Cooking - Helpful Hints


Here are some hints that you might find useful.

Do not discard over-ripe bananas. Slice and sprinkle it with lemon juice. Freeze it to use later for milk shakes, puddings or banana bread. It will blacken if you refrigerate it.

If you only need a few drops of lemon juice, puncture a lemon with a toothpick and squeeze out the amount needed. Replace the toothpick. If the lemon is cut, it won’t last as long.

Fresh ginger will stay fresh for months in a freezer if you wrap it tightly in foil.

To separate the leaves of a round lettuce, hit the core end sharply against the kitchen counter top. The core can be pulled out and the leaves will separate without tearing into strips.


Here is a tasty fish recipe which you can try:

4 cod fillets, skinned
Salt and pepper to taste
150ml dry white wine
˝ lemon, sliced
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
4 tablespoons lemon juice
50g capers, chopped

Place the fish in a frying pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the wine and lemon slices, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove the fish from the pan, reserving 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquor, and leave to cool.

Mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and reserved liquor.

Stir in the capers.

Place the fish in a serving dish and top with the caper sauce. Serve cold.
