    Food prep easy and fun.LLoved the 'peel a banana like a monkey'
    I knew about the egg and garlic but the potato and ginger peeling were new to me. Enjoy!

    Anyone else have food prep tips or tricks?

    DKR Interesting ideas, interesting stories


    We don't peel potatoes anymore. Just scrub the dickens out of 'em. The peel has all the good stuff.

    Hard boiled eggs. Roll lightly under you hand for a few turns - pinch and the shell comes off.

    I discovered while quite young you can't lick the bottom of a peanut butter jar, so a thin, flexible spatula is used to recover the last of the peanutty goodness from the container.

    Spray on bread while proofing
    spray on hand while rolling out or kneading dough
    spray hands while rolling up (balling) dough for dinner rolls
    BTW - sprayed on a snow shovel, it keeps the snow from sticking while tossing it to the side of the drive

    Cooking, it's whats fun in the kitchen

    Can zip through a lot of potatoes with a applemate peeler. And it slices them for scalloped, frying or boiling for mashed :)
