Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Cutting Dried Fruit

We love using dried fruit to add a tarty sweetness to salads, and chicken dishes. Chopping dried fruit can be a sticky endeavor. The more you chop, the more the fruit clings to the knife.  We use a kitchen scissors to cut through larger fruits, such as figs, apricots and prunes. Just snip away, and see how easy the task can be! Kitchen shears are also a great way to cut fresh herbs and poultry too.
Stay tuned for a recipe for Moroccan Chicken with Dried Apricots…our first foray into the land of the slow cooker!
