Have you ever tried eating frozen seedless grapes?  They make a wonderful, healthy, cool-down summer treat!   Frozen peas also make a nice treat, though not as sweet.  Frozen grapes also can be used to cool down drinks without adding unwanted water.

The freshest eggs will sink to the bottom of a glass of water, while the older ones will tend to float.

To make shelling your hard boiled eggs much easier, add a little baking soda to the water while boiling.

Your potatoes will take a lot longer to bud if you add an apple to the bag of potatoes.

To prevent brown sugar from hardening, add a couple of marshmallows to the bag to collect the moisture.

To help prevent onions from spoiling, separate them and give them plenty of ventilation.  Easiest way to do that is to use old clean panty-hose.  Place an onion in it, tie a knot close to it.  Add another onion, tie another knot, and continue until hose is full or you’ve run out of onions.  Hang them to further enhance air circulation (in a dry environment only).  They should last for months this way instead of weeks.
