Uses for Kitchen Shears

June 12, 2014

chopped herbsI 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. :)

Even chopping green onions can make my eyes water. So instead of using a knife, I use my kitchen scissors to chop them. Just clean the green onions as normal and snip until you have the desired amount.

Whenever a recipe calls for cutting up marshmallows, (or anything sticky and sweet, such as dates, dried apricots, etc.), dip your kitchen shears in confectioners sugar between cuttings to keep them from sticking to the blades.

We make pizzas at home quite often, sometimes half and half which makes it a little more difficult to share. My DH had a brilliant idea, use scissors (any will do, make sure they are clean though) to cut it into serving pieces.
