1. Love your spreadsheets
Or sticky labels, or leather bound notebooks etc. Whatever your chosen MO you will need to keep meticulous records of your culinary creations, or you will end up resorting to a taste test. Keeping good records will also allow you to improve mediocre methods or repeat excellence.
2. Add more salt
Because taste is more important than cardiovascular health
A dirty word in social intervention, but essential in the food from scratch workflow.
4. Free up dark spaces
The corners of every cupboard in your house will soon be crammed with Tupperware.
5. It’s a long haul
6. Sell your soul to Kilner
If you pursue food from scratch then you will inevitably bankrupt yourself with glassware. Alternatively develop an appetite for rummaging around in charity shops.
7. Try everything once
Because you never know where your next taste sensation will come from.
8. Try some things only once
This for me is the most important point on this list. An unfortunate experience with pickled dandelion in my zealous youth taught me that just because you can eat something, it doesn’t mean you should. Some foodstuffs are not misunderstood, they are just disgusting.
