Tips and Bits: Skewers

Today I started a tips section called Tips and Bits Tuesdays. Here I will give hints about how to do stuff, make things eaiser and organization tips. The one now is about skewers.

Soak  your wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before using
 them so they won't burn during cooking.
 If you prefer metal skewers, which have a long life, use
 square or twisted types, which will hold the food better
 than round ones. 
 To keep food from slipping off during cooking and turning,
 use two parallel skewers rather than a single skewer. 
 If you're using a wooden skewer, as you thread the food
 move the pieces close together, with no space showing.
 If the skewer is metal, you can leave small spaces between
 the pieces. 

 When using foods with different cooking times (such as shrimp
 and beef), don't combine them on the same skewer. Instead,
 make skewers of just shrimp or just beef, start cooking the
 beef first, and then combine them on a serving platter.
