Did You Know……Beer??

Here are 2 fun tips on what else beer can be used for:

1) Turn out fluffier pancakes and waffles – If you like flapjacks on the puffy side, sub your favorite lager for the liquid called for in the recipe.  You’ll be amazed at how light and airy they turn out- and how the flavor gets kicked up a notch!  Also try using beer when making Matzo balls or baking bread.

2) Cook Juicy Chicken- Prop a whole chicken over a half-full can of beer (the can goes in the cavity) and season with salt, pepper and spices.  Then place it vertically on a hot grill or a pan in the oven – the beer evaporates into the bird as it cooks, creating a supermoist chicken.  DELISH!
