If you’re anything like me, you LOVE to cook, but absolutely hate engaging in any sort of food prep. Who likes scrubbing potatoes and mincing carrots anyways? But my most dreaded chore is, without a doubt, peeling produce. Oftentimes, I find that even the priciest hand-held peelers can’t get into those tough nooks and crannies.
That’s why we’re going to share a video with you today that helps take the fuss out of skinning your fruits and veggies, all without having to touch that peeler. Here are some of our favorite highlights from the clip.
1- Scour your carrots with ease
Removing the skin from a “hairy” carrot doesn’t need to be a laborious task! All you need to do is grab a stainless steel scouring pad and get to work.
Simply wash your carrot using your favorite produce wash (you can make your own right here) and place the veggie on a cutting board. Take a hold of your scouring pad, then simply “buff” the skin away.
The best part about this hack is that clean-up is so easy; just rinse the stainless steel pad with soap and water and put aside for your next peeling session. Cool, huh?!
2- Skin your grapefruit with a spoon
If you’re looking to add some wonderful tartness to your fruit salad, then look no further than this brilliant grapefruit skinning hack.
Start off by laying your grapefruit on its side so that its ends are facing out horizontally. Make one full cut to the fruit, but don’t pull apart! Next, inch a tablespoon into the crease and turn clockwise, making tiny pushing motions as you go.
Once you’ve made a full circle, you should be able to easily twist the skin off of the two equal halves. This method keeps the juice in the fruit and allows for a more attractive presentation.
