Easy Way to Measure a Reduction

Turn to your sewing basket for an unexpected tool that takes the guesswork out of reducing liquids.

It can sometimes be tricky to tell, when reducing a liquid for a recipe, at what point it's simmered down to the desired amount. So you don't have to eyeball it, use a metal hem marker. Measure the liquid before starting, then set the hem gauge for the finished amount, checking periodically until it reaches the level of the gauge.
