Several weeks ago we were at a friend’s house for dinner and I learned a little tip on how to keep water from boiling over your pot! This is simply amazing!
All you do is place a wooden spoon over the top of your pot- that is it! The water and foam will boil right up to the spoon and to the edge of the pot but it will not run over the sides and onto your stove- who knew!?
I should tell you that the first time I tried this at my home, it didn’t work and my husband laughed at me for thinking something so simple would solve an age-old problem. But I think I must’ve had too much water (I do this often), or maybe my spoon wasn’t magical or something ’cause I’ve tried it half a dozen more times since then and it works fabulously!
Give it a shot and see if it works for you!
