Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Slicing Tomatoes

January 27, 2015


We love tomatoes! In the summer, we can’t get enough of them, fresh from the farm stands. In the winter, the tomatoes we get tend to be a bit mealy at best, and like styrofoam at their worst.

At this time of the year, we resort to cherry or grape tomatoes, or fancier types, such as the kumato, or campari varieties. These little guys can easily be squashed under the blade of even a sharp chef’s knife.

Using a serrated knife, (aka a bread knife, or a steak knife) can make getting a clean slice from a soft tomato much easier. If you don’t have a serrated knife, use the tip of your regular knife to pierce the skin and get the slicing party started.

Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Slicing Soft Produce

September 17, 2013

elegant, stabbing, frustration

No matter how sharp my knife is, I can’t seem to slice a ripe, juicy tomato without macerating it. Unless, of course, I use a serrated knife.

A serrated or jagged edged knife, often referred to as a bread knife is the perfect tool to get a clean, precise cut on soft produce, such as tomatoes, figs, or grapes.

Simply choosing the right tool for the job makes the work so much easier!
