Energy Saving Cooking Tips

Trying to save money on electricity? Our electric rates have risen 50% recently! Electric stoves use a lot of energy. Next time you have to cook noodles, try cooking them this way and lower your electric bill a bit. Bring the water to a boil and then add the noodles and stir. Cover the pot and turn off the heat. Set a timer for 20 minutes and leave the pot of water and noodles set. When the  time is up, stir and drain the noodles. They should be done to a turn! (Spaghetti may take a little less time. )

The same method can be employed when hard cooking eggs. Cover the eggs with one inch of cold water and rapidly bring to a boil, then cover and take off the heat. Set a timer for 22-24 minutes. When the time is up, drain and cool in cold water.

Hope this tip helps you offset the rise in your electric bill a little. Bon Appétit. Begonia
