Five Facts Friday - Kitchen Edition

1. Once opened, store instant coffee in the freezer for up to 1 year - it will stay fresh-tasting until you need to use it again.

2. Before measuring a sticky ingredient such as honey or molasses, spray the measuring cup with cooking spray; the sticky ingredient will come out of the cup much easier.

3. The cap on the vanilla extract bottles are a handy little measure, most caps hold between 1/2 and 1 teaspoon.

4. Eggshells are less likely to splinter if they are cracked on a flat surface rather than on the edge of the mixing bowl.

5. A few unfrosted crumbled gingerbread or other ginger cookies make an excellent thickener for pot roast gravy.
