Did you know you can toast coconut and nuts, foaming milk, and peeling garlic in the microwave? Now you do.
3 Microwave Hacks Everybody Should Actually Use
#1 Toasting Coconut And Nuts
Toasting brings out flavor in a huge way but these food's high fat content makes them easy to scorch on the stovetop or in the oven. Luckily, you can just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds increments, until they reach the desired color for coconut and fragrance for nuts.
#2 Foaming Milk
You so don't need fancy equipment to froth milk for lattes at home. Just fill a jar with a lid halfway with milk and shake vigorously. Remove lid, microwave for 30 seconds. Fancy milk foams.
#3 Peeling Garlic
Yup, best hack ever. Microwave a whole head of garlic for 20 seconds and the peels will slip off the cloves in seconds. Done!
