Whenever boiling potatoes, it seemed that the pot always boiled over no matter how we tried to prevent it . . . until discovering this simple tip: simply put a little slice of butter into the pot! Rather easy, isn't it?!
Since we began doing this, we have not had any pots/pans of potatoes boil over (that I can remember anyway! :), which has been nice! (We have also used this trick when boiling other foods and for the most part, it seems to work rather well.)
Do you have any simple kitchen tips that you would like to share? If so, I would love to hear!
