Mom Money-Saving Tip 78




Maximize your use of boiling water. If you need to cook raw shrimp for a few minutes, use the opportunity to remove the skins from a few tomatoes and/or make hard-boiled eggs.  Just drop everything into the same pot of boiling water?  The tomatoes will take no more than a minute.  Then scoop them out and pull off the skins.  The shrimp will take 3-5 minutes, depending on size, to turn pink and slightly curl.  Then scoop them out and peel them.  The eggs will take 10 minutes in boiling water and then another 2 minutes sitting in hot water.  Then run under cold water and peel.  

It’s culinary multi-tasking!
