Chefs’ tips

- When cracking an egg, a stray piece of shell may fall in with it.  Remove quickly by scooping it up with a larger piece of eggshell.

- To maintain freshness, wash green onions immediately when you bring them home from the store.  Dry off and store wrapped up in paper towels in a Ziploc® Brand Bag in refrigerator.

- Place dried herbs in mortar and pestle and gently crush to draw out flavor.  If you do not own a mortar and pestle, gently rub herbs with both hands.
