It’s always nice to have some culinary advice handy, literally… Especially when it’s easily accessible – in the form of a dish towel. This intriguing find was discovered one of our numerous treks to Value Village. I’ve learned over time that one must keep his eyes peeled to make some unique discoveries.

Produced by Lakeland Plastics‘ Home Freezing Advisory Services, this dish towel provides information about blanching vegies. First, it explains the process.

Blanching fresh vegetables in boiling water halts the activity of enzymes and helps to ensure that a good flavour, colour and texture is retained.

Scrolling down the towel, there is useful advice to blanch asparagus, beans, broccoli, beets, brussel sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, celery, courgettes, leeks peas, peppers and spinach.

Some useful tidbits of information, without stepping out of the kitchen.
