Fresh herbs and greens are wonderful ingredients to use in the kitchen. They’re aromatic and can really bring a lot of flavor to your dish. When working with fresh herbs, the leaves of the herbs typically have to be stripped off of their stems before you can add them into a dish or chop them up because the stems are not quite as delicious (and some are barely edible) as the leaves are. This isn’t a problem when working with just a sprig or two of herbs, but it can be a big job when stripping handfuls of herbs. This is where a gadget like the Chef’n Looseleaf Herb Stripper comes in handy. This leaf-shaped tool has holes of varying sizes on its surface. Simply place the stalk or stem of your herbs through one of the holes and pull. The tool will quickly strip all of the leaves, saving you lots of time and effort. It has eight different sized holes, which should be more than enough for just about any job.
The stripper can also be used to remove kale and other greens from their stalks easily, making it a great tool to have around as we head into summer salad season. Suddenly, those side salads will seem like a snap and you’ll be enjoying plenty of in-season veggies on an everyday basis!
