Spices Herbs Nuts And Olive Oil.
Always store your spices in a cool dark place. Never store the above the stove or oven. The heat, steam, light and general humidity will cause your spice to lose their flavour. They will also last much longer - You might at sometime prepare a dish containing nuts such as almonds or pistachios. These will need their skins removed. Blanche the nuts by boiling them in a pan of water for one minute. Drain the nuts, place them on a clean tea towel, fold the towel and rub the nuts together. You will find that the skins have rubbed off on to the tea towel - Olive Oil they say is a cooks best friend. It is versatile as you will find out as you progress you expertise in the kitchen. When roasting you might use a little oil with herbs. You use olive oil in Italian dishes as a matter of course. I making a stir fry where you might normally use butter you might try a little olive oil instead, it's down to taste we know but it is certainly more healthy.
