Tip: Slicing mushrooms quick & easy

When I learn something new that works ... I like to share.

Use an egg slicer gadget. After rinsing mushrooms, place one in the egg slicer and slice as you would an egg. I sliced an entire carton in about 2 minutes. And - they were all even.

I slice a lot more mushrooms than eggs. I'm sure this would work with a tomato slicer gadget too.

I'm usually a cutting board & knife user but sometimes I'm pressed for time.

Mushrooms shouldn't actually be held under running water. It's better to use a wet paper towel or a wet white towel.

I'm going to give it a try with the strawberries. I spent ??? time slicing them last week!
