Vegetables – Helpful Cooking Hints & Tips

Blanching Vegetables
When blanching only a small amount of vegetables, place them in a wire sieve and place in boiling water for approximately 40 seconds. Then immediately place them into ice cold water.

Artichoke
They have a protective coating, so do not wash them until ready to use.
Use only stainless steel cookware and utensils for artichokes to prevent discoloring.
Rub all surfaces with lemon to retard browning.
If it is not real fresh, then add 1 tsp of sugar (to add sweetness) and ¼ tsp of salt (to retain their color and taste) to each cup of water used.
