Some time ago I stumbled across a Kitchen tip that has become one of my most valuable bits of kitchen knowledge. It may sound too simple, unbelievable and possibly a down right lie BUT I can assure you it works EVERY TIME!
The ONLY gadget you will need is a wooden spoon that can sit comfortably atop your pot. Put it on when you start cooking (before boiling, works best). Yep, that's it! I can honestly say I have no idea WHY this works, but it does, every time. I will say, I have an electric stove (although I REALLY REALLY miss gas stoves!). If you have a gas stove, I would love your feedback on this method.
