Clever Cutting

I am a big fan of America’s Test Kitchen (my fiancé calls it food porn), and they are always full of fantastic cooking tips and tricks. One this past weekend caught me eye because it is so easy, makes so much sense and, oh yeah, it’s free!

When you are chopping, tuck a paper towel under the top side of your cutting board. Then, as you cut pieces of food that you aren’t going to use, like the leaves on celery or the seeds of a bell pepper, just sweep it on to the paper towel. When you are done chopping, you can just scoop up all the scraps and throw them away (or, better yet, compost them). Dang, I wish I had thought of that!

If that’s too low-tech for you, here are some slightly more advanced (but certainly no less cool) cutting boards.
