1. Good gravy! DIY fat separator
Who needs a fancy gadget to make good gravy? Save money and space and DIY. First, let the sauce cool a bit, then pour it in a quart size Ziploc® brand storage bag. Place the bag inside a large glass measuring cup, and wait until the fat separates. Then snip the corner of the bag, and boom! The good stuff comes out first! Before the fat starts coming out, quickly pinch the bag closed. 1. Good gravy! DIY fat separator
2. Homemade popcorn packing
‘Tis the season for packing and shipping. But you’re not a shipping station and you’ve got odd-shaped boxes and no bubble wrap. Just fill a few quart size Ziploc® brand bags with (real!) popcorn. It’s much more colorful, and Grandma will thank you for the snack...and the gift!
3. Piping perfected
From deviled eggs to frosted cookies, Ziploc® brand bags are a piping powerhouse. Fine tune that fact with these tips! One, when filling with icing, keep your hands free and avoid spills by using a cup to hold the bag upright. Once full, give the bag a twist and pipe away!
Another tip? Add a tip! A real piping nozzle, that is. Fold over the top of the bag, cut off the corner, and place the tip inside for extra precision (and swirly fanciness!).3. Piping perfected
