I like food and thought maybe a thread based on simple little cookery tips was in order. I've had a couple of good tips this week and thought you might like to share some of yours. 1) A bit of salt on the chopping board helps stop it sticking to the knife when chopping garlic. 2) Quick pickled onions. Slice an onion and leave it in vinegar overnight. I don't like raw onion and pickled onions just taste of vinegar but these taste very nice. Perfect in a butty or as a side dish.
