24 Smart Kitchen Tips And Tricks That Will Spice Up Your Cooking Experience

What Kitchen Tips & Trick Do You Know?
How many kitchen tips and tricks do you know? So, I found these awesome kitchen tricks and tips going around on Facebook, and I thought it would be nice if I share to our readers on here.
If you enjoy cooking and would love to spice up your kitchen experience, the below 24 incredible kitchen tips and tricks are for you:

1. If you happen to over-salt a pot of soup, just drop in a peeled potato. The potato will absorb the excess salt.
2. When boiling eggs, add a pinch of salt to keep the shells from cracking.
3. Never put citrus fruits (Oranges, Lemons, limes, etc.) or tomatoes in the fridge. The low temperatures degrade the aroma and flavour of these fruits. (That's why our tomatoes don't last in the fridge)
4. To clean iron cookware, don’t use detergents. Just scrub them with salt and a clean dry paper towel.
5. When storing empty airtight containers, throw in a pinch of salt to keep them from getting stinky.

HIV Vaccine: Breakthrough As Experts Generate Immune Cells To Stop Spread

An active Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV) vaccine may be close to reality now as scientists have overcome a major challenge hindering its development.
The big problem has been the inability to generate immune cells that stay in circulation long enough to stop the Aids virus spreading. International researchers believe they have tackled this problem by ‘unblocking’ a process linked to an HIV protein that was halting the production of antibody-generating ‘B-cells’ from the immune system.
Professor Jonathan Heeney, who is the Lead scientist from Cambridge University, said: “For a vaccine to work, its effects need to be long-lasting. It isn’t practical to require people to come back every 6 to 12 months to be vaccinated. We wanted to develop a vaccine to overcome this block and generate these long-lived antibody-producing cells. We have now found a way to do this.
