Here Are 3 Of Julia Child’s Best Kitchen Hacks

Julia Child was one of the most legendary culinary experts of all time, which is why it should come as no surprise that she had so many kitchen hacks that are still used today!

We’ve gone through and compiled three of Julia’s best kitchen hacks, and they’re sure to forever change the way you approach making food.

What To Do When Fruit Sinks To The Bottom Of Your Cake

There’s nothing more frustrating than when your fruit sinks to the bottom of your cake. To combat this, Julia said that you should spread 1/4 of your batter across the bottom of your pan and set over medium heat. Once you have done this, let it cook for a few minutes before adding your fruit and the rest of the batter, and bake as directed. Julia found that having the bottom layer to cook and “set” creates a barrier between the fruit and the bottom of your pan.

What To Do When You’re Out Of Shallots

Shallots are the perfect addition to many dishes because they add a mild, sweet flavor with none of the bite of onions. If you run out of shallots, Julia said that you should substitute the white part of a green onion, or very finely mince a white onion and boil it for one minute.

What To Do When Your Soup Is Too Salty

Few things are more annoying than when your soup ends up too salty, but Julia had a hack for this situation! She said that all you have to do is add a grated potato to your soup and simmer it for seven to eight minutes. Once you have done this, strain the liquid and discard the potatoes, and your soup will be all set!
