When preparing a soup, the spoon which I use to stir the soup with, often falls in. Is there any way to prevent the spoon from falling into the soup?
The obvious solution is to not let the spoon in the pot. While you may just let it rest on the pot, you can also use a spoon rest, as I do.
I always let one of those on the oven so that I can avoid making a mess of my kitchen when I am finished using my ustensils.
Use a longer spoon? Stir, then set on spoon rack next to pan?
A few ways exist to keep your spoon from falling into your soup. The first of which is to not keep your spoon in your soup. How to do that however, is quite varied:
- Purchase a spoon rest.
- Use a clean and empty plate to rest your spoon on by laying the spoon head on the plate.
I, being a bit of a frugal cook, don't own a spoon rest. I use a plate - oftentimes the same plate where I used to arrange the mise en place veggies.
