14 foods you have been eating all wrong (images)

You will be surprised to find out that most of your favorite foods, you have been eating them all wrong.

1. Pancakes

Drowning your pancakes in syrup is inefficient: The top pancake will be completely soggy, while the middle pancakes remain totally dry. The solution, according to Reddit user InfiniteOrigin: Carve a hole in the middle of your stack (like so) before pouring any syrup, which will then distribute more evenly through your pancakes.

2. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
If you’ve eaten a PB&J, you’ve also probably had a dollop of jelly seep out and land on your table or clothes. But there’s a better way to construct this staple sandwich that stops messy drips. Simply fence the jelly in with peanut butter, as a Reddit user called ChickenMcFail explained back in 2012.

Spread as much peanut butter as your heart desires on two slices of bread, then create a taller border with peanut butter on both sides. On one slice, put the jelly in the hole that the border creates, then complete your sandwich.

3. Oranges
If you have a knife handy, opening oranges doesn’t have to be a hassle. Cut small slices off the top and bottom of the orange. Then, cut a slit in the side of the orange. The orange should unroll, leaving a nice row of slices.

4. Pomegranates
This fruit is way less difficult to seed if you use a bowl of water. First, cut the fruit in half. Then, submerge the fruit in cold water and pull the fruit apart, releasing the seeds with minimal mess. The unwanted membrane that holds the seeds will even rise to the top of the water.

5. Pistachios
Never break a nail trying to open a sealed pistachio again, just use another pistachio shell to separate the nut that’s hard to crack, as cartoonist Natalie Dee suggests.

6. Cupcakes
Think there’s no way to eat a cupcake without getting frosting on your nose? Think again. Get rid of that pesky wrapper, slice about half of the bottom off the cupcake, then make a frosting sandwich out of the two slices. With that delicious gob of frosting safely in between two pieces of cake, the odds of frosting all over your face will be minimized. A fork might also solve this problem, but it’s way less fun.

7. Hard-Shell Tacos
Hard-shell tacos tend to fall apart, leaving too many meat and cheese casualties. But wrapping larger soft tortilla around the taco will help, according to Kitchen Simmer. The food that would normally just fall will be caught by the protective tortilla. You can make this more binding with a layer of refried beans in between the tortilla and the taco shell.

8. Bananas
Most people start peeling from the end with the longer stem. But if you peel from the bottom, it will be easier and the banana will contain fewer stringy pieces. This is also the way that monkeys open their bananas, so you know it’s right.

9, Mangoes
This delectable treat can get quite messy when slicing. Try cutting the fruit in half and sliding each side down an 8 oz glass. The inside will peel out leaving workable fruit to cut, slice or dice.

10, Crabs
The crab-eating ritual seems to always include some violent banging in order to get through the hard shell. However, the greatest amount of meat can be gotten by simply breaking off the claw.
Break off the claw and use it to dig out the meat.

11, Peas
Stop chasing these round vegetables around the plate. The simple approach to this roll-able problem is to use a fork, mashing this vegetable and making it much easier to manage.

12, Sushi
Eating sushi is all about the order of things. Make sure to flip the fish so that it is dipped into the soy sauce before putting ginger or wasabi on the morsel.

13, Boiled Eggs
Tired of the tedious picking when shelling boiled eggs? Try boiling eggs in baking soda. When complete, crack a quarter sized hole at each end of the egg an blow.

14, Apple
Rather than eating an apple from the outside in to the core, which wastes approximately 30 percent of the fruit, you should eat it from the top down.
The core simply disappears, allowing for 100 percent consumption of the apple.
