To hold the cards as I assemble and combine the recipe ingredients, I use a large Binder Clip.
It holds that card upright, easy to read and out of my way (and out of the way of flying flour and frosting…I am a messy baker...!)
I also keep a supply of small and medium clips on hand for a variety of tasks in the kitchen.
I use them to hold the skin closed after stuffing a whole chicken or game hen. I started to use them when I was in Paris and was stuffing whole Bresse chicken to roast for a dinner party at my appartement. I was naturally without a trussing needle and thread to close the cavity to keep the stuffing inside the bird. However, for some reason I had office supplies.
I have found this method to work like a charm, just be careful to let the clips cool before removing them.
I use binder clips to reseal multi-serve bags of frozen foods, pretzels, chips and the like.
Binder clips also come in handy to keep my side-towel in place, clipped to my apron as I cook.
I am sure there are many, many other uses for these multi-tasking clips from the office supply store.
How would you put Binder Clips to work in your kitchen?
I would love to hear your ideas…merci in advance...!
