Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The Betty Crocker Kitchens recommends marinating only in glass or plastic. Metal bowls may react with acidic foods, which can cause an off-flavor and minerals to transfer from the bowl to the food.
  • tip 2
    If you use a lot of garlic, consider purchasing finely chopped garlic in jars. This is usually found in the produce section and needs refrigeration.
