How to keep potatos from boiling over

Hi everyone!
This is only a quick tip that will not make you happier but that will prevent this moment, when you are annoyed anyway, you have too much to do and then your kitchen turns into a mess because you forgot the potatoes. This tip is actually one of the things that I found out when I was four years old and helped my mother cooking. You simply add the tiniest amount of nutmeg. Tiny enough that it won't change the taste. I think that it does something to the surface tension of the water and it prevents this typical foam development that you can observe when boiling potatoes. And by the way, it does not work with rice or pasta.

Hopefully this tip as been helpful and you can avoid some stress with it.

All the best!
