What to Chill.

Three things you should always have in the freezer


Unsalted butter: It won’t take on fridge odors, and you'll always need backup.

Parmesan rinds: Add to soups, tomato sauce, and beans for salty flavor.

Raw nuts: Toast and chop for salads, pasta, grains, and making pesto

To chill or not to chill?


Refrigerate: Citrus, apples, corn

Don’t refrigerate: Tomatoes, garlic, stone fruit

How to boil a large egg


Hard-boiled: Lower into gently boiling water and cook 10 minutes. Transfer to an ice bath and let cool.

Jammy: Lower into gently boiling water and cook 6½ minutes. Transfer to an ice bath and let cool. 

Poached: Crack and slip into simmering water. Cook, occasionally stirring gently, 3 minutes.
