I came across a list of food tricks involving toothpicks that I had no idea about.
Use toothpicks to keep the sweet potato propped up in the water. When the purple shoots start growing, make sure they get nice and long, and then cut them off. You will then plant them and grow new sweet potatoes.
Using toothpicks, you can grow your own sweet potatoes.
Poke toothpicks in the spud and place them over a jar of water. Once sprouts start popping through the skin, you’re ready to plant them!
It’s really a fun little experiment.
Toothpicks help raise the potatoes and that results in cooking the potato more evenly, without the usual issues that come from cooking potatoes in the microwave. It’s really absolutely brilliant!
Try adding a toothpick to a strawberry in order to make a fruit topiary. These fruit topiaries make a perfect centerpiece for a baby shower, birthday, or any event where you want to add a colorful splash! Interested in making one yourself?
There’s no better way to keep produce fresh than by capping the ends you would have otherwise thrown in the trash with toothpicks.
If you want to make a cook like a chef, you need to think like a chef. The next time you’re trying to stuff chicken breasts. Try using toothpicks in order to keep everything in place. You’ll find that your chicken will come out a lot more evenly cooked!
The next time you need to keep cake fresh, try placing sandwich bread on the sliced parts of the cake using toothpicks in order to keep the cake fresh.
