Try Skinning A Watermelon For An Awesome Party Trick

Peeling fruit is all kinds of useful for when you’re having a dinner party or just have picky eaters in your house. Some are easier to peel than others though. Ever get those deliciously juicy Florida oranges? Insanely hard to peel.

Well this sweet party trick is brought to you by former NASA Engineer Mark Rober from his YouTube channel. I had no idea this could be done, or why you’d want to, but it makes total sense when you watch it. Very cool.

Here’s The Best Way To Freeze Ground Meat

If you’re like me, when ground meat goes on sale, you tend to stock up and throw it in the freezer.  The only problem with this approach is that when you want to make a meal and don’t need to use a whole package, you still wind up having to thawing it all out. It seems more often than not, I find myself in this frustrating situation.

Fortunately, I found this really slick trick that serves two purposes:

  1. It distributes the meat, making it thinner for quick defrosting.
  2. It divides the meat into portions for easy removal using just one bag.

Here are the steps from the video:

  1. Put the meat in a freezer bag
  2. Using  a bottle of wine or rolling pin, go over the bag to spread the meat out evenly
  3. Using chopsticks or a back of a knife, divide the meat into sections
  4. Then freeze

When you need some meat you just open the bag and the sections will easily break apart.

Pretty cool!
