Another Gourmet Tip of the Day

This is a lesson that I have learned many times over. But if you use this tip, you will find your cooking experience to be so much easier and enjoyable.

When heating water, after putting the water in the pot and putting it on the stove, so that it will come to a vigorous boil much faster, it is really helpful if you then turn on the burner.

You will be amazed at how quickly this will happen. There have been times when I did not use this helpful tip and I would come back five, ten minutes later and the water would essentially still be at room temperature and probably would take another hundred years, if that, to finally come to a boil. Of course, by then, I've gotten hungry and eaten something else.

So, for more successful heating of water to a boil, turn on the burner.
