Salad spinners

Whenever I do a dinner party (and indeed even when just a deux, if I'm feeling organised) I will prepare the vegetables, blanche broccoli, cabbage,(not mange tout or sugar snaps!) cook other veg, cool and then re-heat in microwave just before serving. This works well, keeping green veg green, allowing the washing up of saucepans and providing vegetable stock for gravy.

My main problem is draining said veg enough. So - I may be preaching to the converted, but if you spin green vegetables, including broccoli, after cooking and then refreshing in cold water, in a salad spinner, it really gets rid of all the water that tends to remain. So no more soggy broccoli. Just thought I'd share!

"Spinning" Veg

That's one of those ideas that you (well at least I) think - "why didn't I think of that"; simple but effective. If I'm using frozen spinach, I always have trouble squeezing enough moisture out of it - not now though. Thanks for sharing. Salad spinners no longer just for salad leaves!

Old Salad Spinner

I have an old spinner that I use to spin light hand-washed things, like pants and bras; nearly as good as a spin drier.
