It seems like I am constantly grabbing water when I am at the stove cooking. Whether it's tossing some water in a pan to warm leftovers, adding a splash of water to a pot of soup, or heating up some frozen veggies, water is something I like to have handy!
Rather than turning around and getting some tap water (icky!) or -- even slower -- getting filtered water out of our Berkey on the counter, I just reach for the tea kettle sitting on the stove with water in it. I keep it filled with Berkey water (whenever I fill the Berkey or before heading to bed for the night) and it's just so handy to use some when needed! I don't even have to move the pan from the burner to add water!
When my sister was here recently, she saw me using water from the tea kettle while I was cooking and told me that was a great idea. That's when I realized that this little habit of mine might qualify for a Kitchen Tip! :)
So tell me, how many of you grab water from the tea kettle when you're cooking? Or do you even have a tea kettle on your stovetop? :)
