7 Kitchen Hacks & Simple Solutions

Genius hacks and simple solutions are amazing because they make our lives easier, save time, and minimize effort. Today I’d like to share with you some more kitchen hacks, including an easy way to peel avocado and boiled eggs, simple way to cut stone fruits, such as plums and nectarines, into two equal halves, tips to remove pomegranate seeds, and more. I hope, these simple ideas and tips will make your time in the kitchen a little bit more pleasant!

Pit stone fruits with a twist

7 Kitchen Hacks & Simple Solutions
Cut stone fruits, such as plums and nectarines, into two equal halves, then twist the halves in opposite directions. Use your thumb to pop out the pit. If your thumb doesn’t do the job, gently pry it out with a butter knife, or cut the fruit into quarters for easier separating.

Peel boiled eggs in a big batch

7 Kitchen Hacks & Simple Solutions
Time to put all your eggs in one basket — or, uh, one pot or other crockery. Peel multiple hard-boiled eggs at a time by shaking them in any lidded container. Smash, bang, boom! Shells are cracked and ready to shake right off. The eggs won’t be pretty, but they will be ready for an egg salad much quicker than traditional methods.

Pit and peel an avocado with just one utensil

7 Kitchen Hacks & Simple Solutions
Cut an avocado into quarters lengthwise to break the fruit from the pit. (Once it’s down to the last section, you can just pop the pit right off.) Run a knife under the tip of skin on each section, then peel it off like a banana.

Hull strawberries

7 Kitchen Hacks & Simple Solutions
Though you technically can eat strawberries whole, most of us would rather not. Press a straw through the bottom of a strawberry until it breaks through the top and takes the hull — the white part of the center of the berry — with it. Remove any remaining leaves with your fingers.

Keep seeds from falling into citrus juice

7 Kitchen Hacks & Simple Solutions
When juicing citrus, wrap the fruits in cheesecloth (or a clean stocking) for seed-free sipping.

Remove pomegranate seeds (without dying your hands red)

7 Kitchen Hacks & Simple Solutions
The nitpicky nature of pulling out pomegranate arils is almost enough to make you pass on these delicious, antioxidant-rich fruits. Simplify the process by cutting a shallow circular cone into the flower end of the pomegranate, then slice off the bottom (the other side) of the fruit. Score the fruit along its natural ridges, and pry each section apart to reveal the seeds.

De-kernel a cob of corn without your teeth

7 Kitchen Hacks & Simple Solutions
Use a bundt pan — yes, really — to slice corn kernels off the cob. Place the pointy end of the cob on the center hole of the pan (with the open part of the pan facing up) and gently press downward. The pan does double duty as both a stand and a kernel collector.
