DailyDirt: Cutting Up Your Food…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Those of us in the US will be thankful tomorrow for a bunch of things, and we’ll probably be eating unusually large meals. For those of us who aren’t accustomed to entertaining guests, the timing of cooking a big meal often gets hung up in the food preparation — taking too long to chop vegetables and such. So here are just a few tips on how to cut up some foods. (You’re welcome.)

Extracting The Good Stuff From A Pomegranate

I did this on Saturday: take out all the seeds from a pomegranate, and put them in a jar to take round to a friends’ place for lunch.

I only did one cut, to split it into halves with a knife. The rest was breaking the pieces apart with my hands, and extracting the seeds. The secret was to feel around and find weak spots, so I could gently break the pieces into smaller pieces. Otherwise if you use your strength to force it part, the seeds will fly everywhere.

In the end only maybe a dozen seeds ended up in unwanted places…

RE: Cutting Onions

I would like to add the following comment: She is left handed as I am, to correctly cut the onion without inflicting cut fingers on someone. I suggest the following: push a fork into the base of the onion (from the remaining side of the onion, positioning the fork to lay on the cutting board)then proceed to shear the onion as she demonstrated (her knife was dull)without the involvement of the right hand. Trial and error lead me to this technique.
