      Tealights have enough power to keep a pot of tea warm until they burn out. Stacking 4 or more should allow you to warm up some water, I don't know about hitting a rolling boil though. Realistically the sterno cans will do a better job, or even better the little esbit stoves with fuel tabs.

    Or, you can simply open your stovetop knob and light the fire with a grill lighter or match.
    The stovetop igniter is the only thing that doesn't work in a power outage. Presuming you have natural gas or propane like a sane person.

        Most new homes aren't thanks to the medical establishment being captured by environmentalist politics, so they created some bullshit studies (that cannot be reproduced) to say that gas gives you cancer. I think its even illegal in my state to sell new gas appliances, you can only buy parts for existing ones.

      Floating doesn't mean it's bad, it just means its old. There's a correlation there, but it's possible to have bad fresh eggs and to have good old eggs.

    Buy two dishwashers. Every time you use a plate, cutlery, utensil, etc. Put it one of the dishwashers. When it's full, run the wash cycle. When you use a clean plate, put the dirty plate in the other dishwashers and run the wash cycle on it when the second one's full.

    If you need to dice carrots but don't need autistically consistent little cubes, there is a faster way than the method most people are taught.

    Peel your carrot, and slice off a bit of the side of the thick end so it sits flat on your cutting board. Then, starting at the thin end, slice your carrot on a bias into long planks. Then, fan these planks into one overlapping line and chop through them along their length. Finally, dice the resulting sticks into cubes. Its much faster but sizing is slightly less consistent.

    When chopping romaine or any other lettuce, after you take off any wilted/unappetizing tips, cut the entire head in half lengthwise. You'll be able to see the exact length of the core and can then just make a straight cut right where it ends.

    If you plan to pan fry cabbage for a dish, freeze it first so it breaks down and becomes tender. It'll cook much faster and have a better texture.

      Thanks I'll try this out next time I'm making mirepoix.

      Any pantry item that contains natural oils like nuts or brown rice or whole wheat pasta/flour should be stored in the feeezer to prevent those fats from going rancid over time. Also if you don't go through vegetable/olive oil very quickly then do the same for them to maximize freshness.

      Foods meant to be eaten chilled (deli-style salads, dips, gazpacho) should be overseasoned compared to how they taste warm/room temperature because tongue receptors are dulled in the presence of cold.

      The zest of a lemon has the bright lemon flavor but not the acidity if your recipe doesn't need (any more) sourness.

      Soak sliced onions (especially red) under running cold tap water for 30 seconds to remove the bite from them if serving raw.

      When slicing meat thinly put it in the freezer for 10 minutes before cutting to firm up the flesh to make cutting easier.

      With leans proteins like some fish or chicken breast that get tough easily velvet them by massaging 1/2 tsp of baking soda in slurry with either some water or egg white into them and letting set for 30 minutes in the fridge before cooking.

    maybe I would just light my stove with a match. since gas doesn't need power morons.

    use egg slicer for strawberries, and mushrooms

    store bananas in a ziplock bag to keep them fresh.

    any muffin mix is also pancake/waffle mix.

    Pancake mix can be muffin mix by adding sugar and fruit or whatever.

    when putting foods in fridge or freezer that go rancid quickly (cooked pork or chicken) place hand warmer pack in on top of food separated by plastic or wax paper. it will absorb all the oxygen to stop it going rancid. packs can be reused until they stop heating up. when they absorb all the O2 they cool down.

    check the "managers specials" in the meat department, often very good cuts of meat end up there because people think fat is bad.

    not exactly a food hack more of a recipe:
    take equal parts room temperature butter and cold sour cream mix them together quickly the butter should break up in to tiny pieces and go solid, maybe add salt and pepper (to taste).

    put on fresh hot baked potato and the butter won't melt and run off all at one time. it will slowly be released as you eat the potato.

    eating salty food nullifies bitter tastes. way better than sugar.

    Tangentially related to Culinaly but..

    When using the dishwasher run the hot tap at the kitchen sink until it's as hot as it can get just before starting the machine as in most homes they are plumbed together and that'll feed the dishes a jumpstart of near-scalded water to breakdown crud on them when they are at their dirtiest at the start of the cycle.

    Also if you live in area with with hard water (or use notice calcium/magnesium white chalk buildup around your faucets and such) go on Amazon and buy Citric Acid (same stuff they coat onthe outside of Sourpatch Kids candy, comes in cheap for like a 10lbs bag that lasts years) or it's sold in grocery stores as Lemi Shine and dump 2-3 tablespoons into the floor of your dishwasher every other cycle and it'll dissolve the buildup. This is important as overtime said build can clog the little holes in the sprayer rinse that spin around inside the machine causing it not to clean like it should leaving white particles or residue on the finished dishes/glasses even if you use a rinse aid like Jet Dry. Also good to clean the carafe in your water kettle/coffee maker and if take some of the citric acid and make a paste with it and some toothpaste and smoosh it on the shower/sink faucet heads over night it'll eat off build on those too and help undo gummed up buildup there too.
