That is true! It's impossible for me to cut up a raw sweet potato, but after I stick it in the microwave for a few minutes then it's much more manageable.Many foods can be cooked whole, and then after having been cooked and they are softer,
then, they can either be cut or chopped more easily, or put into the blender, then.
@Shoshana - am tagging you here because I forgot to tag you in the above reply - I learned some months ago that tagging someone in an edited post does not generate an alert - for an alert to be generated, you have to do the tag in the original post (which you quite likely already know! )Hi Shoshana - I don't know of a better way to find a thread, unfortunately! When I'm searching for a thread, I try to remember a key word(s) and if lucky I might also remember the name of a member who contributed to it --

Someone recently suggested I try a mandoline slicer to help make chopping a bit easier, has anyone tried one?
