Myth № 1: To make dough thicker, you need to mix soda with vinegar.
To debunk this myth, we did not actually bake any buns, but rather, remembered the lessons of chemistry class. So, in order for soda to be used as a baking powder, it needs an acidic environment. But a common ’60s housewives somehow decided to mix the soda with vinegar (apparently, it was at hand most often). As a result of the reaction, carbon dioxide is released, adding a little puff to the dough. The problem is that carbon dioxide escapes before it gets to the dough.
Ideally, you need to mix soda with dry ingredients and acid, then with liquid, and quickly mix both parts and bake. However, in this method, it is better to use not vinegar, but sour cream, buttermilk or lemon juice as an acid instead — or simply buy a bag of baking powder. We think this method is better left in the past.
Conclusion: does not work.
Myth № 2: To make eggs easy to shell, you need to put them into cold water after cooking.
Hard-boiling eggs perfectly so that the shell can be easily removed is a form of art. Just immersing eggs in cold water is clearly not enough.
Chef Kenji Lopez-Alt has cooked thousands of eggs over the past few years to find the perfect cooking technology. He advises dropping eggs into boiling water — and not cold, despite what everyone is used to. We did this ourselves! The eggs were really cleaned better when they were brewed in boiling water. However, you must be attentive because at different temperatures, eggs can simply crack.
Here are a few more secrets:
The fresher the egg, the harder it is to peel off the shell.
Ready eggs should be placed in ice cold water for at least 15 minutes, and then cleaned under cold running water.
To make sure eggs are 100% not going to crack, try cooking them in couples. Kenji claims that this is the perfect way of cooking them.
