THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Kitchens are full of old wives
tales, probably because that is where the old wives spent a good deal of their
time. Old wives tales are often used to help guide cooks in the kitchen, yet one
of the longest standing is the old wives tale that says a watch pot never boils.
Many cooks refuse to watch a pot of water come to a boil because they feel as
though it takes longer and has a difficult time reaching the boiling point. This
is an old tale, and one that is likely to stick around as long as people are in
The funny thing about this old wives tale is that
it simply is not true. It doesnít matter if you watch a pot of water or not, if
itís put over heat it will boil eventually. The basis of this old wives tale is
simple: it feels like it takes longer because you are concentrating on the water
and nothing else. So, remember that the pot will boil just as quickly if you
watch it, it will just feel like it takes longer!
