If you have a cooking tip which you’d love to share with the world, then tell us for Food Revolution Day. Either take a picture of your tip, or the results of this skill, or write it in a tweet with the hashtag #myFRDtip. We will then promote the best of the bunch on the Jamie Oliver website and after May 17th we will pick the best one and send the winner a lovely Jamie-inspired prize.

To start you off here’s a selection of our Editor Jim Tanfield’s tips…

@jamieseditor #myFRDtip take the shell off hard-boiled eggs in a small bowl of cool water. They peel off like a dream and leave little mess. #FRD2013


@jamieseditor #myFRDtip don’t throw any red/white wine dregs away after a party. Make ice cubes from them and then use in stocks and sauces! #FRD2013

@jamieseditor #myFRDtip shop-bought herbs wilting? Bung them in the freezer to prolong their freshness, takes minutes to defrost when needed. #FRD2013

Nb. All Food Revolution Day tweets should still be tagged with our master hashtag #FRD2013!
