5 simple kitchen tips and tricks

1. Save potatoes

Andrey Starostin /

Potatoes turn black or brown after cutting but the browning reaction can be prevented with one simple tip. Cover diced potatoes with cold water before cooking. This easy trick keeps your potatoes perfectly white.

2. Give bananas a new life

Here is an effective lifehack that can keep your bananas fresh. Just wrap the end of the bunch with plastic wrap. You may even separate each banana. The plastic wrap prevents ethylene gases from releasing out of the stem and this, in turn, helps your bananas not to ripe too fast.

3. Scoop out squash seeds at ease


Removing seeds from vegetables such as squash and pumpkin can be difficult. However, we can fix this problem in no time. Just use an ice cream scoop. The edge of the scoop is sharp, so it cuts through the stuff inside the vegetable much easier. The ice cream scoop works like magic and it is much more effective than your hand or a regular spoon.

4. Peel ginger with a spoon
