Old faithfuls

Post by mavisbramston » 07 Jun 2019, 10:28

Are you like me that despite the fact we have all these modern gadgets etc in the kitchen you still use and prefer using old faithful kitchen things you have used for years.?
I have several graters but still use the old metal cylindrical grater I have had for years.
My wooden spoons, my cheap plastic carrot peeler. Hell what are they called again?
I bet I think of more.
Love to know yours.

I too prefer my "tried and true" kitchen utensils..... food just doesn't taste the same when prepared with others. I do a lot of cooking in a wok and have two that I use - one teflon coated for eggy, sticky stuff and a steel one for everything else.

I find a wok very convenient. Our frying pans are feeling a bit lonely these days.

Frying pans non stick ones are used by me for making porridge or rolled oats. I dont use quick oats.
For years when I made porridge it stuck on saucepan boiled over . When I cooked it in microwave disaster every time..
So now I fill my frying pan with water. Larger surface area wont boil over. Handfull of rolled oats according to taste. Bring to boil keep stirring and simmer.
Perfect each time.
By the way porridge really does lower cholesterol better than anything.

I use rolled oats instead of quick oats. Much better for you. I add sultanas, shredded coconut, and milk, and microwave for two minutes. That's my breakfast each day.
