Don’t Slip on That Spud

Don’t Slip on That Spud

I’ve done it and you probably have too. I’ve cut myself while cutting potatoes. A potato doesn’t have any flat sides and they tend to roll around a bit on the cutting board. This is when you just might slip with your chef knife and – ouch!

To avoid this common problem, cut a very small and very thin slice off whatever part seems to be the flattest. This way your spud will have a flat surface and when you cut into it, it’ll be stable. It doesn’t take much of a slice to create a flat-bottomed potato.
