I made this recipe again and thought I’d share a really great time saving tip with you all. I saw this on an episode of 30-Minute Meals once, and before Rachael showed the tip (she got it from a friend of hers), she said that your jaw was going to drop when you saw how much time you’ll save. I figured she was exaggerating, but honestly – my jaw did drop!

I’ve used this method for grapes, small tomatoes (grape or cherry), and I’m sure it would work for other things as well. I’m going to post a visual step-by-step which I think is pretty self explanatory. You just save 2 of the tops from deli containers and use them to slice a bunch of items all at once. No more cutting one by one, letting them roll all over the counter!

  • Oh my gosh, I never would have thought of that. That is CLEVER!!

  • Cool tip.. and gorgeous ring.(s)

  • My jaw dropped, too!! That’s amazing!!! 🙂 Ha ha. Soon, we’ll see an infomercial selling two pieces of plastic specifically designed to do this job…but I’ll always stick with your deli top method!

  • OH…THAT kind of container. When you told me on the phone, I had no idea what you were talking about! That’s pretty awesome! I laughed when I read Courtney’s comment about the infomercial…SO TRUE!!! LOL

  • Great tip! I cant wait to try it. 🙂

  • I’m sure there are gadgets for it – but none as awesomely thrifty as this! It seriously saves so much time!

    Thanks, Donna – the wedding rings are from my husband’s grandma, and the other is one I got recently to remember my grandpa. I’m pretty partial to ’em myself 😉
