Boiling water

A watched pot never boils. Or does it? Did you know that putting a wooden spoon over the top of a pot of boiling water or any other liquid will keep it from boiling over? I use this tip all the time and it works. Now you can’t put it over the pot AFTER it boils over. You need to place the wooden spoon over the top of your pot BEFORE the water starts to boil. Try it…works every time. I found this nifty tidbit on Pinterest (my source of all information). But what I don’t understand is WHY this works.  Clearly, I wasn’t paying enough attention in chemistry or physics or whatever science class would explain this. Do you know why it works? Leave a comment and let me know.

By the way, looking at Pinterest makes me want new pots and pans. xoxo- Tanya
