Peel Hard-Cooked Eggs The Easy Way
If you want to peel a batch of hard-cooked eggs all at once, first let them cool down, then put them all in a plastic storage container with a lid. Shake the container hard for 10 seconds. The egg shells will basically shatter and can easily be slipped off.
Honey Is Forever
When honey crystallizes it is hard to use, and some people throw it out, thinking it has gone bad. But in fact, honey literally never goes bad. Three-thousand-year-old honey found in jars in the Egyptian pyramids is still edible today. So when your honey crystallizes, just put the container in a pan of simmering water for a few minutes. The crystals will re-melt and your honey will be good as new again. The flavor of the honey is not affected, so you can do this over and over again, until you’ve finished every last drop.
