    Cut Your Round Stuff in Half!

    Cut Your Round Stuff in Half!



    Took me 20 years to figure this one out. I just never thought about it.

    I chop just about everything, and one day, I cut something in half and found it to be so much easier to slice and chop from there. Thought I was just plain dumb for not thinking of it sooner, but then I showed a few others who apparently were just as dumb as me because they always cut their round stuff round too! Once I slice in half, getting the disired slice size is easy and less risk of cutting your digits!

    Good one, Lisa! I almost cut the tip of my index finger off while chopping a whole onion. The knife slipped on the wobbly onion and I cut my finger; had i cut the onion in half first, then it would have been more stable on the cutting board and much safer to chop up.

    Not to sound superior or anything I think I was taught that trick way back when I was taught to cook, I've always done it that way at any rate without thinking about it. There is also a trick when you cut the onions for fine minced or corse chopped thats all in how you slice the halves that make it easier. I can't really explain it, but if you experiment you can see what I mean.

    I cut potatoes like this too when cutting up for potato salad.

    I was never "taught" the halve it first trick, but also figured it out...

    Maybe this is something so basic, that our teachers never thought to mention it?

    I guess we all get there in the end after many years of cut fingers etc.

    The funny thing is both my mom and MIL didn't know to do it either!

    Want to know the saddest part? I was once a prep cook and supervisor for the Sizzler salad bar and chopped up stuff for 8 hours!
