Here’s a handy tip to keep things clean when you are preparing vegetables.
– Line the kitchen counter or board with cling film and peel your vegetables on it. Wrap up the cling film and its contents when you are finished and throw it in the bin. Your work surface will be clean and ready to go again immediately.
You can also have a large bowl ready when you are working and place all the peelings and trimmings in there ready to throw away easily.
This tip also works when you are rubbing spices into raw chicken – lay the chicken on cling film, rub in the spices, wrap the cling film around the chicken, pop it into a plastic food bag and place it in the fridge to marinate.
