Never thought these tools could be so handy?

.

 

Have you tried using common household items for culinary purposes? These can pull double-duty in the kitchen:

 

1. Use an ENVELOPE with a snipped corner as a funnel for dry ingredients and spices.

 

2. Use BOWLS to peel garlic. Place cloves in a bowl, cover with another bowl, and shake.

 

3. Use a CHOPSTICK to level off ingredients in a measuring cup.

 

4. Use a MELON BALLER to scoop out tomato seeds or core an apple.

 

5. Use an old CAN to cut dough and form perfectly round cookies and biscuits.

 

6. Use a PAPER PLATE when transferring dry ingredients to a stand mixer.

 

7. Use a sturdy STRAW to core a strawberry.

 

8. Use a GRATER to strain citrus fruits. Squeeze fruit over a flat grater to keep seeds out of the juice.

 

9. Use a SQUEEZABLE KETCHUP BOTTLE to pour pancake batter onto the pan.

 

10. Use UNSCENTED DENTAL FLOSS to slice soft food like cheesecakes and hard-boiled eggs.
