Things I Have Learned

Of all the food TV and media I have consumed in the past several months, I have learned exactly two things that I found useful.

One, from the Food Network's Food Detectives (the only show on that channel I may watch), that to disperse the bubbles from a shaken up soda can, you should tap on the sides of the can and not the top of the can.

Two, from youtube, that a better way to open a banana is to do it like monkeys, which is to pinch the bottom end rather than to peel down from the top. (Of course, you could also snap the banana in half, which shocked Foodgoat the first time he saw this, not knowing there could ever be any other way to open a banana).

  1. this works great for bananas that aren't quite ripe yet and the ones that are perfect, past due bananas not so well. saw this on lifehacker a few weeks ago.
