Kitchen Tip – Make it Easier to Use Shortening
Tawra, I noticed that you said on your website that you always keep a paper towel in your shortening. I used to do this as well but now I use an open plastic sandwich bag.
I reach into the opening of the bag (which keeps my hands clean) and then use the bag to grease my pans. When I am done greasing my pans, and I still have my hand in the baggie, I sort of spread out my fingers into a claw and then put the baggie back into the shortening, which keeps the top of the baggie open for next time.
The plastic bag holds up better than the paper towel, and I’ve never had to put more than one baggie in the shortening.
I love your website BTW- great tips, and it is really making me examine some things in my life.
Great Idea! Thanks!
