Scissors and Custard Cup for Finely Chopping Herbs


It is summertime! Our herb garden is abundant with oregano, thyme, sage, chives, and more to add fresh flavors to our summer meals on the porch. A convenient method for finely chopping herbs for savory baking recipes is to use a small kitchen scissors and a Pyrex custard cup. After washing and drying the leaves to be chopped, fill the custard cup about halfway full. Then use the scissors to ‘chop’ the herbs to your desired size. While you are ‘chopping,’ it helps to change the angle of the bowl to the scissors, from time to time, as well as to move the scissors with short pecking like strokes.
