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.)
- Do you have trouble cutting open a pomegranate? There are at least a couple methods that claim to be better than just chopping it in half and starting to peel at random. [url]
- Most folks don’t really need to cut bananas before they eat them, but if you do — and you have a needle handy — this video is for you. Maybe this is a goofy trick to play on someone, but it’s not really that useful for making a banana any easier to eat. Try cutting a watermelon in 2 minutes instead. [url]
- The officially correct way to cut an onion doesn’t care about you crying your eyes out. It’s all about the base — and not cutting it off until you’re almost done. [url]
