Aluminum foil is something that everybody has in the kitchen since it has multiple uses within the realm of food storage. Aluminum foil is the knight in shining armor of home manufacturers as it can act as a handy pie shield or a makeshift broiler pan, depending on the requirement. It’s interesting how inventive we can get in the kitchen when the need arises. Below are some surprising uses for aluminium foil that you might have never before considered.
Grill Cleaner: We all love throwing a backyard BBQ on a sunny weekend with friends and loved ones. The grill sometimes catches the firmament of the grill brushes and this can contaminate food. In order to avoid such health hazards, we can use the aluminum foil to scrape and clean the grill to eliminate any pieces of grill brush that might be lurking around the corners of the grill.
Create a makeshift broiler pan: If you want to cook bacon to perfection, then aluminum foil may come in handy as a makeshift broiler pan. It entails a simple procedure for trimming a sheet of heavy duty foil in order to make it as long as baking sheets. The foil is placed in the base of the pan and the rest is history. Needless to say, different things can be roasted or broiled on this makeshift broiler but bacon is best.
Safeguard Pie Crust: Cooking is a creative art and sometimes different elements are needed for different recipes. Not everyone has all of the necessary kitchen accessories handy like a pie shield. The aluminum foil comes in to save the day this time, acting as a pie shift. Inexperienced people may get into trouble with this method but it is safe to strip the foil into three segments which creates a protective shield for a pie.
Customize the size of your pan: In cases if you don’t have the right size pan or perhaps the right shaped one, you can use foil for adjustments. You can shred the foil and build a wall in the pan in order to create the ideal size or shape.
The Roasting rack: In the absence of a roasting rack, then twist the foil into a rack and set the choice meat on it to roast.
Slow Cooking Sling: Some foods need slow cooking in the oven and it is important to have a sling to take it out. The aluminum foil can be twisted into a sling to achieve this feat. There is the need for 2 strips crossed over each other.
Cooking in foil packages: Open-fire cooking brings a smoky flavor to food that’s incredibly delicious. Meats that are mixed and cooked in this manner help the food to retain its juices. In addition, cleanup when you are done is super easy.
Scrunch up foil to create a double boiler: When food needs water bathing, foil will certainly come to your rescue. This process involves five pieces of foil shredded and crumbled into ball. These balls are placed in the corners and center of the pan before adding water. Now you can place the baking dish on top and there you have it.
