Steady Slicing

By Madeleine Dee

Does your cutting board ever slide around while you're slicing and dicing?

Here's a simple trick for keeping it in place while you chop:

1. Wet a few paper towels and squeeze out the excess water. You want it moist, not soaking wet.

2. Fold the towels and place them under your cutting board.

3. Test your board by pushing it with your fingers. If the board is curved, you may need to fold the towels over again to steady it.

4. When the board doesn't budge as it's firmly pushed, you're ready to cut!
