26. Making crispy chips at home
We often open a bag of chips, but have you ever thought of making them yourself? Cut potatoes into wafer-thin strips (4.5. millimeters is a good guideline). Rinse them with cold water and drain. Place the chips in a frying pan filled with 6 glasses of water and 1 glass of vinegar. Bake for 30 minutes and then drain. Let the chips dry and move to an oven-safe dish. Fill the dish up to 10 centimeters with oil and bake in the oven at 150 ° C, until the chips are golden brown and crunchy.
27. Cutting through soft foods
A warm bread fresh from the oven or a nice roll of cake: it’s a shame to cut them up into uneven pieces, but keeping your knife straight when cutting through soft foods like these is not always easy. Try cutting pieces with dental floss! This often works better than sawing through your food with a knife.
