Wow, over the last few weeks I have been a total slacker when it comes to the tip o' the day. Maybe now that Christmas and New Year's have come and gone I can get back into my routine?!?
This tip comes from real life experience...
When hand-washing your "sharp as a samurai sword" apple corer, use EXTREME caution. Otherwise you might end up shearing off half of your thumbnail (the nailbed part). This will cause you to have to spend the next several days being careful not to bump your thumb or exert any pressure with it due to such actions causing extreme pain.
The upside of this incident is knowing that if anyone were to break into our home, I could use the apple corer as a weapon against them. I Ymulti-purpose kitchen tools!
