I'm a little blown away by a few states inability to cook some simple things... like rice, corn, or bacon.
Many people over the course of the last 3 months have had to get creative in the kitchen. With so many working from home and not being able to venture out to restaurants or grab take-out as freely, we found cooking is tough. A study of Google searches in each state found out which food we where searching for cooking tips on the most.
Each state had difficulties with interesting foods that you may not expect, according to The Daily Meal. For instance, Illinois wanted to know how to cook lobster tails the best. Washington, DC was more interested in cooking quinoa or Connecticut was oblivious to the proper steak cooking techniques. I thought everyone knew how to cook steak?! No?
The ones that shocked me most though where Idaho and Indiana's inability to cook bacon!? Seriously? That may be the easiest thing ever? Turn on stove, but foil in a pan, then bacon... and cook until it looks yummy! Or the fact that New Mexico doesn't know how to cook rice, that one baffles me too. Ummm... Rice in boiling water with some butter and a little salt. Simple.
I did learn something from the list. Several states love fiddleheads..... I've never heard of them until today, but not sure I care to try them EVER though.
Georgia was most interestd in Cabbage tips. Then I'd assume the next search was, "How do I get rid of this smell?"
