I am loving my new herb scissors by Ball. They have several blades so they chop up herbs into tiny bits in no time and really don't miss much. They come with a sheath/comb to get any stuck herbs out of the scissors. They are pretty cool and not very spendy. They cut herb chopping time in half for those of us who aren't so fast with the chopping. :)

This is a fast way to separate herb leaves from their stems. Poke the bottom end of the fresh herb stem in a hole on a grater, then pull on the stem. The herb leaves will be saved on top, while the stems gather on the work surface.


Use the smaller grater holes for smaller stems. This is great for fresh herbs like parsley that are time consuming to separate.
