    This video taught me that if you don’t know how to cut a vegetable, just cut it at an angle. It works for every vegetable.

      @Terahnee Cool 😎

      Terahnee 18 days ago +1

      @L eh. I've also since learned through practical application that the carrot slices don't roll off the cutting board as easily and it's a larger surface area for the Maillard reaction :-)

      The stems of broccoli are quite good with ranch, and they are great raw. I have asked my mom to by a head of broccoli be hade I wanted to eat just the stem lol

    Great video. Thank you!
    Could you please create a video of how to identify when all these vegetables are fresh. Possibly with examples of each vegetable at different stages: e.g. picked too early, fresh, acceptable, cook only, dispose; and obvious markers to spot real spoilage vs imperfections.

    I have been cooking Bok Choy all the time with entire leaves, but separating the leaves and the stems make so much sense because the stems are indeed harder to cook! Learnt sth new gotta try it soon thx!

      Yeah idk why I never thought to do that. I was always annoyed that the leaf part got overcooked lol. Tbf the leaves are kind of big and hard to eat in one go anyway, makes sense to make them smaller.

    23:34 In the "Technically Fruits" you forgot to include the butternut squash and kabocha squash, and pumpkins.
    28:08 Chayote seeds are edible. You don't have to take them out if you don't want to. Also very good raw in a salad when thinly sliced as you would do with
    jícama. (38:26)
    29:45 For the bitter melons is best to salt them for at least 15-30 minutes to take the bitterness out a bit just as you would eggplants. (30:27)

    Great video! Very informative! I definitely learned how to handle a few new vegetables that I didn't know how to chop up before; but being Asian, there are a few veggies that we cut up or use differently. And some vegetables that I kept wondering if they might be featured here that didn't make an appearance. Love the axe on the Kabocha squash. That was effective. I usually use a big Chinese cleaver with a hammer to chop in half, then the cleaver makes quick work on the two halves which we roast and make into soup almost every other week.

    When she cuts the carrot she just says eat the carrot when its freshly dug and don’t do anything to it. Definitely recommend. Dirt and pesticides provide a very good and sour aftertaste.

    Don‘t cut the root part of the onion first! Cut it last, it makes your eyes water less since a lot of the liquid with the enzymes that makes you tear up is near the roots. I am personally quite sensitive to that and I find that it helps. You can also use it as a sort of handle while chopping for a better grip I find.

    I didn't realize you could eat the large broccoli stem, gonna make use of that in the future! Plus putting more stuff in stew and soup. I like making those and I felt like I could really expand what I put in it since the ingredients I use now are delicious, but pretty mundane.

    The way I like to pickle onions is; Cut them length-wise and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds. Then take a mandolin to the cucumber to create these kind of macaroni-shaped slices and use that for pickling. Done this way, it kind of folds in on itself, but it's not quite as fragile where the seeds would be.

    Wait wait one moment. I feel like I have to add that the chayote seed was my favorite part growing up as a kid, it had like a firms soft texture. However the form I had it was almost always steamed or in a caldo

    You don't advise to cook endives, though this is thé way we do it classically in Belgium. It is actually one of our national dishes to braise the white endive until they are soft and tender and then roll them in to the best cooked ham slices you can find, put them in an oven casserole and gratinee them in a cheese bechamel enriched with the deglazed liquid from the endive braising pan... then pour the cheese bechamel sauce over all and put in the oven to gratin, optionally with extra cheese and bread crums and butter on top... serve with mashed potatoes, its fabulous! must try if you can. greetings from Belgium

    Please caramelize your endive, and do not only eat it raw! It is so great when roasted/broiled/cooked.

    Pro tip: When putting veggies which spoil easily in a jar, throw in a 5-6 inch long piece of tissue (2 layers). This absorbs the water and your veggies will do better!

    11:40 these first cuts are unnecessary and make the other cuts dangerous (as seen in video) Onions are already in layers, so cutting them in two different ways will already give you diced onions.

    "I don't recommend you cook endives or really do anything else with it"
    Please let me share one of my favorite recipes with endive that I've been enjoying since childhood :D
    It's really simple; you take off the bottom of the endive, take away some of the outer leaves if they're wilting, then at the part where you cut the bottom off, go into the core of the endive and slice out a sort of cone-shape from the bottom. Removing this part of the core will help lessen the bitterness of the endive. Then you blanche them in (salted) water for about ten minutes and pre-heat your oven/airfryer in the meantime. Put your boiled endive in a lightly greased oven tray, cover with cheese and ham/bacon and pop into the oven for another 10-15 minutes or until the bacon and cheese are nice and toasted. Enjoy! :)

      White toot toot!
      The biggest varieties come from the Norwegian and Russian market, but let’s talk about the Norwegian ones. Now the meat is very very dense in protein and fat, chop the arms at an angle, and use a chainsaw to slice the bone. You want to cut the meat in an angle or dice it, and it goes along with a salad aswell. If you mix this meat with Russian meat your friends will ask if you use steroids. Now for the abs, get through the very thick layer of fat, and cut off the first layer of abs, and this meat is very marbled and delicate. For the pp it’s very big, almost as big as the black variety but not as big.
      You want to marinate it. For the brain eat it’s nice for stock, but for eating I prefer the asian brain because it’s 0.5 times larger, and way more tender.

      Asian toot toot!
      Now you want to buy them in China, because the korean and Japanese variety are more expensive and quite rare. You want to cut off the abs, very marbled and fatty. Now for the genital, very very small, but they say it’s very tender. Now cut the abs in an angle, very good in a soup, and the marbling is very good in stew. The brain is very very big, and tender, you want to cut it in an angle or put them in the oven, but it’s fine raw. Cut off the limbs, when eating these limbs I recommend whites for protein and fat, but black for tenderness. You want to take the bone, now layer it up, thinly slice it up, or dice it. And marinate it or put it in a salad, it goes very nice with white rice.

      @Freja Johansson
      10C is the hottest many "normal" fridges can be set to 0-7 is usually recommended.
      10C is "Cold" as outside temperature if I am waring T-Shirts but the source I took the "fridges" for keeping stuff warm (10C) from was said to have - 19C during filming and have lows of - 25C, both happening in some places.
