If you are buried under a lot of debt and are tired of paying multiple bills every month, then credit consolidation may be the answer you are looking for. It is a process by which your multiple bills are consolidated or combined into a single monthly payment. You can consolidate your outstanding bills yourself or take the help of a credit consolidation company.
The primary aim of credit consolidation is to make the process of coming out of debt convenient for you.
There are three ways to consolidate your debt:
1. Credit consolidation loan: A consolidation loan is similar to a personal loan. It has a long term for the convenience of payment. With this loan you can pay off all your creditors. The advantage of credit consolidation loan is that the interest rate on such a loan is much lower than the interest charged by your creditors. Since you pay off all your creditors with this loan you now have to pay only one creditor. This reduces the burden of making payments to multiple creditors.
2. Credit consolidation program: If you take the help of a debt consolidation company to consolidate your debt then the company assesses your financial situation and according to that a monthly installment amount is decided that you can pay to the company. From this monthly payment the company, after deducting its fee, pays all your creditors. Thus you do not have to pay every individual creditor separately, you pay a fixed amount to the company every month and the rest is taken care of by the company. The company also negotiates lower rates of interest with your creditors. Late fees and other charges may also be waived off. You do not have to attend any more harassing calls from creditors because they will be notified that you have joined a credit consolidation company and any further calls must be directed to them.
3. Credit consolidation done yourself: If you think that you can handle all your creditors and can consolidate your own bills then you can do so. This way you save on the fee that the credit consolidation company will charge you. However your creditors may not be as willing to negotiate with you as they will be with a credit consolidation company. However, if you want free credit consolidation this is the best option.
All of the three ways have their own pros and cons and have to be selected by you, based on your requirements.Read More
Do you ever wonder why when you try search the web for bacon cooking tips you will see a bunch of ideas coming from different food experts? The information given is usually the information asked. Meaning a lot of people has queries in how to cook bacon that is why a lot of articles on bacon cooking tips are provided. This all boils down to one fact: A lot of people want to eat BACON! Eating bacon is a wondrous activity for many. This is why we provide you some cooking tips that will perfect your bacon recipe.
Bacon is a cured meat prepared from a pig. It is first cured in a brine or in a dry packing containing large amount of salt. Fresh bacon may then be further dried for weeks or months usually in cold air, boiled, or smoked. Fresh and dried bacon is cooked before eating. Boiled bacon is ready to eat, as is some smoked bacon, but either may be cooked further before eating.
Usually, the bacon you bought from the grocery stores or supermarkets are stored in you refrigerators at home. If the packaged sliced bacon is cold from the refrigerator, it is recommended to slowly slide the dull edge of a butter knife along the length between the strips, gently rocking to separate slices. Plan ahead and take the bacon out of the refrigerator thirty minutes before cooking. The slices should separate easily.
When frying bacon, it’s important to keep a close eye on it and turn it often. It can burn in the blink of an eye. Older bacon will cook and burn almost twice as quickly as fresh bacon. If you prefer very crispy bacon, choose thinner slices to fry up. Pour or baste off the fat as it accumulates in the pan. Use medium to medium-low heat. Cook slowly, turning often, to render out the most fat and help reduce shrinkage. Pricking with a fork will help alleviate any curling problems. Drain breakfast bacon on paper towels.
The fat rendered from the cooked bacon is highly-prized as cooking oil for its flavour. After cooking the bacon, cool the rendered oil to room temperature and then pour through a fine sieve into a glass container. Cover and store in the refrigerator or freezer for future use. If you do not need the rendered fat, let it cool to room temperature, pour into a disposable metal or glass container, seal, tie up in a plastic bag, and toss into the trash. It’s not wise to pour it down the drain, because it will coagulate and clog up the drain.
It is not necessary to buy fancy microwave bacon cookers on the market. A simple microwave is enough. In the microwave, place a microwave-safe paper towel in a micro dish large enough to fit a single layer of bacon slices (4 to 6 slices). Cover with another paper towel. Six slices should take about 4 to 5 minutes on high, depending on the wattage of your microwave and the thickness of the bacon. Start checking after the first two minutes, and continue cooking at one minute intervals until you can judge the cooking time for the way you like it. Consult your microwave manual for more specific times. A rotating base in the microwave is highly recommended for even cooking, and most come with one built in these days. Remember that foods continue to cook even after the timer goes off in a microwave, so let it rest a few minutes before you dive in to let it crisp up and avoid burns. This method reduces curling of the bacon.
Bacon can also be easily baked in the oven, resulting in amazingly flat slices. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Place a rack inside a baking sheet. Lay out slices and bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on desired doneness level. The result of this is crispy bacon with no curls. You can also use your broiler, but it is not recommended. First of all, the splatters not only make a royal mess, but also cause flares. Secondly, it requires much more attention. It is better to stick with frying, microwaving or baking.
You might ask how you can reduce splattering problems. Part of the problem arises from today’s quick salt-brining method known as pickle-curing used by producers. The liquid naturally soaks into the meat, and you know what happens when liquid hits hot oil — snap, crackle, pop! Be sure the bacon slices are cold from the refrigerator and start with a cold pan. Use medium to medium-low heat and take your time cooking the slices, turning often. It’s preferable to thaw frozen bacon in the refrigerator to reduce moisture, but even then some of the moisture may naturally seep out. You can towel off the slices before cooking to avoid excess splattering.
If you are conscious of your fat intake, lean smoked ham or prosciutto can be substituted in many recipes where the rendered bacon fat is not needed. Turkey, chicken and vegetarian bacon products are also available.
Most slab bacon is sold with the rind attached. Remove the rind before using. Render the fat from the rind by frying and you have cracklings, a favorite Southern snack!
