Cooking Tips
This is NOT a recipe thread (not yet, at least :Smile ), but a place to share cooking tips and tricks you've picked up along the way.  Here's a few:

-If you've batter-fired anything, don't drain it on paper towels. This traps the steam and runs the risk of making the bottom soggy.  Use a narrow gauge cooling rack or a sheet of slightly crumpled foil.

-Even if the recipe doesn't call for it, add a smidge of corn flour to any tempura batter. It makes the batter adhere to the food better.

-You can disinfect wooden cutting boards with white vinegar.  It's acidic enough to kill any lurking salmonella germs, and won't change the taste of the next thing you cut.

-Meat, veg and eggs should always be at room temperature before you start cooking them.

-Parchment paper is king.

Any others?
