Tips for Cooking with Dairy Products

Almost everyone uses dairy products in their daily lives. Whether it's for making dairy soup, flavoring your favorite salad, or making a moussaka topping.

Here are some quick and practical cooking tips, that will make your experience in the kitchen easier:

If the grated cheese is very soft, place it in the freezer for half an hour to harden.

If the color of the butter darkens during frying, it is necessary to add a few drops of oil when melting it. If it is melted and seasoned with a little salt and lemon juice, it becomes a suitable sauce for steamed fish or vegetables.

Another useful cooking tip: Cooking cream becomes tastier, if melted honey is added during the beating process. And to beat it more easily, add a pinch of salt to it.

Rice pudding becomes tastier if it is beaten with whipped egg whites at the end.

If the white cheese is needed to quickly cover with a salad or casserole with it, cut it into thin slices with a knife. The leftovers of it can also be used.

Beat them with a mixer, by adding one egg. Then with the mixture small balls are formed and are rolled in breadcrumbs, then fried in hot oil. Another option is to dip them in a little butter and cream. This makes an appetizing sauce for pasta and spaghetti.

White cheese, that is too salty, is put in cold water for two or three hours. Dried white cheese will regain its taste if soaked for a while in milk or yogurt. Mozzarella is preserved by placing it in a container containing salty water and keeping it in the refrigerator. This will keep it for at least three days.

All cheeses should be removed from the refrigerator one hour before consumption, in order to feel their aroma more strongly.

Here are some useful tips for cooking with dairy products. All of them can be of great help to you.
