51 Uses for Parchment Paper
Parchment Paper Uses
We were going to write a post on uses for parchment paper, but then we saw this article on King Arthur’s Flour (www.kingarthurflour.com) that answered the question so beautifully and thoughtfully that it just didn’t make sense to make our own.
Here’s a sample of just a few of the many uses of parchment paper, courtesy of King Arthur. Just click on “50 USES” below to be taken to pictures that will instruct and inspire.
Now, check out 50 USES FOR PARCHMENT PAPER…
We just need to add a 51st use for parchment paper to this list. It seems that the one use missing in the above article is the actual reason why we purchased our first roll of parchment paper… We love to make fresh fish and vegetable packets wrapped in parchment paper. A fish wrapped and then cooked in parchment paper can be served and then uncovered by your guests. The contents will remain warm while everyone is being seated and allow guests the pleasure of opening their dinner as if it were a present. The red and green veggies used with this fish are sure to add to a festive dinner party served in December. These packets are easy to assemble, easy to serve as brilliant self-contained individual dinner packages and so easy to clean-up afterwards.

Another handy box that may have more uses than you’ve imagined, probably already in your kitchen drawer, is tin foil. This following site has an excellent post about all the different uses for tin foil, actually 35 ideas for tin foil.
One more handy kitchen box is baking soda. It has uses beyond the kitchen too, as you’ll find in our uses for baking soda chart.
