to prevent sticky ingredients from sticking to your knife
When chopping up
sticky ingredients, it can be a pain when the ingredients
are sticking to your knife instead. When you know you're going
to be chopping up things that will stick a lot, give your
knife a quick spray of nonstick cooking spray. This will help
keep the ingredients from sticking to your knife and won't
coat the ingredients with cooking oil, which is another alternative.
You can also help
prevent sticking by dicing ingredients instead of chopping
them randomly. With dicing, you will chop the ingredients
into thin strips in one direction and then turn it 90°
and then chop it in the other direction to create tiny squares.
