|BAKED BEANS: When soaking the beans overnight, soak them in cider instead of water. Then when baking, add applesauce to thicken the syrup.
RICE: For a nice flavor, try soaking 3/4 cups of rice in some cider before cooking.
SOUPS: Keep in mind that you can replace the stock called for in a soup recipe with the same amount of apple cider. This works best in pea soup and onion soup.
DISCOLORATION: To keep fruits such as apples, peaches and bananas from turning dark, sprinkle the fruit with orange, lemon, lime or pineapple juice.
APPLE STORAGE: Apples should be kept cool at about 36 to 38 degrees F and kept away from other products as they absorb ordors easily.
COOKING EGGS: A tablespoon of vinegar added to the water when poaching eggs will help set the whites so they will not spread. Also: Add a little vinegar to the water when an egg cracks during boiling. It will help seal the egg.
PIE CRUST: A pie crust will be more easily made and better if all the ingredients are cool.
JELLO SALADS: Substitute apple juice for water when making jello salads. Delicious with lemon, orange and raspberry jello.
