One of the purposes of this blog is to ask, and possibly answer, those deep and meaningful questions which beset us as we lead our daily lives. Is it possible, for example, to open a cube of Oxo without some of the contents all over the place. Such is the mess I make when opening the tin foil that I have had to resort to using gravy granules.
It turns out that I, and I’m sure many others, have been guilty of what can only be described as Oxo-cube abuse.
If you look closely at the foil packet, you will see that it has tabs on the side. Instead of ripping the packaging to get at the contents, you should lift up the tabs to produce a flattened package and crush the stock inside the packaging. You then have a piece of foil with your gravy granules on it which you can then carefully pour into your jug without causing a mess.
