Did you know? Helpful Hints for the Kitchen

Did You Know? Helpful Hints for the Kitchen!

1.Calorie-free club soda adds sparkle to iced fruit juices and reduces calories.
2.You can flavor tea with lemon drops or mint candy. They melt quickly and keep the tea clean and brisk.
3.Make your own cider or tea! Place orange peels, whole cloves, and cinnamon sticks in a 6 inch square cheesecloth. Bring up corners and tie with sting or close with rubber band. Add to cider or hot tea for ten minutes or longer if you want a stronger flavor!
4.Always chill juices or sodas before adding to beverage recipes for best flavor!
5.Floating an ice ring in your punch rather than cubes inhibits melting and diluting. It also is very decorative! You can also try freezing fruit in the ring to add even more decorative flair.
6.When serving hor d’oeuvers on a sliver tray, you may wish to protect it by covering it with a layer of leafy green lettuce!
