• Sopping Countertop Prevention

    Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti-wetcounter.jpgNext time you have to cut up a watermelon, tomatoes, cantaloupe or any other over-ripe or overly juicy fruit or veggie, you'll appreciate this valuable tip to help keep your counter tops clean and mess free!

    Preparing fruits and veggies can make a nasty mess of the countertops and floors from the sticky drips!

    To avoid a nasty mess place the cutting board within a large baking sheet. The sheet will collect any juices that run out of the fruit/veggies and keep the mess contained. To prevent the baking sheet from sliding around during cutting, place a hand towel underneath it.

    Simply drain the juice into the sink, scrape off any seeds in the rubbish or compost pile and your kitchen countertops stay clean and sticky-free!

      Very good idea. I think a dish tray, the old fashioned type that sits under a dish drying rack would work also. Possibly eliminate the need for the tea towel underneath. You are an inspiration to me. Thank you.
