Tips and Tricks - Cutting Round Fruits and Veggies

These are the things I use and share. They are too good to keep to myself. Here, I let you in on what the tips and tricks I'm using right now.



             
Cutting round objects can be hard but there are ways to make it easier. When cutting a potato for example slice a thin piece from the bottom to make it more stable. This keeps the food from rolling around and prevents you from getting hurt. Once it is stable you can slice or cube it.

Tips and Tricks; How to Core a Strawberry

These are the things I use and share. They are too good to keep to myself. Here, I let you in on what the tips and tricks I'm using right now.



This is a simple trick to use with your fresh strawberries that you have. The green leaves on top of the strawberries aren't edible. An easy way to remove these is to take a normal plastic straw and stick it through the bottom of the berry and push up. Once you pull out the straw the core of the strawberries comes out along with the green parts. Rinse and Eat!
