I’ve had some people asking how I could cut carrots so uniformly and finely. This is a little gadget that I use to shred carrots but mind you I would say this gadget (called a Mandoline) is probably close to the most dangerous utensil you would encounter in the kitchen. I am always careful when I am using the Mandoline more so than when I am using the knife.
As you can see here when I am shredding some carrots with the Mandoline, I don’t go to the tip of carrots in case I shred my fingers along with it. What do I do with the end pieces like those? Follow the link to find out. (Hearty Lentil Soup)
