Thanksgiving is a huge undertaking, so whatever shortcuts we can take, to make our lives a little easier, we are more than happy to take. With just a little planning, this Holiday we are all so grateful for, can be a little more enjoyable to pull together.
Chopping is the most tedious part of preparing a big Thanksgiving meal, so get it done ahead of time. That way you can spend a little more time enjoying and a little less time stressing on the big day.
- Clear Tape
- Airtight Containers
- Chopping knife
1. A day or two before Thanksgiving, chop the ingredients that you will need for your Thanksgiving recipes. Be sure to chop the correct quantities and divide them as such. Place them in airtight containers.
2. Place a sprig of rosemary in with the chopped veggies, to help retain freshness. (Rosemary is a natural preservative used throughout the ages.)
3. Label the container with the name of the ingredient, the quantity, and any notes you might need to remember.
Everybody loves a flaky pie crust! They key to that flake is minimal handling of the dough. When you grate in your frozen butter, you’ll have less cause to stick your hands in the bowl.
