Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Funnels

4552300422_comp

Funnels are a useful kitchen tool, but one that not all of us have. I mean, how often do you use a funnel?
No worries! There are several options that you do have laying around the house.

When looking to transfer something like rice, or beans into a smaller container, or even pour flour into the running mixer, simply take a clean envelope and cut a hole in the corner, just large enough for the item to pass through.

For oil, or liquid items, roll a piece of parchment paper into a cone, and set the small end into the cup or bottle you are transfering to. Small quantities of liquids shouldn’t soak through paper, if you pour carefully. This also works for dry ingredients.

If you have a wider opening in your container, pour the ingredients into a pitcher, and then slowly pour from there.

When you’re done, toss the faux funnel into the trash, and enjoy your mess-free kitchen counters.
