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
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.
