Good Harvy Scarvy discovery for those with small kitchens

leave a comment »

I cooked two extra-thick pork chops last night to have with the potatoes, and so we had some leftover pork, and “leftover pork” spells “harvy scarvy.” (Explanation and recipe at link.)

I just measured amounts by eye, and this time I didn’t want to do all the mincing, because I figured the dish was better the finer the mincing. So I hauled down my Chef’n VeggiChop Hand-Powered Food Chopper and used that. I cut the apples into big chunks, then used the chopper to mince them. About 5 good pulls and the job’s done. Then the same for two stalks celery—big chunks, then chopped—and for half a large onion.

It did an amazingly good job. Of course, a food processor will do the same job, but really, for a little job like this? Clean-up was a snap—rinse out the bottom, rinse off blades, and wipe the lid: Bob’s your uncle.

Anyway, I have a small kitchen and limited storage, so a full-bore food processor is not for me—plus I’ve had one. I like the VeggiChop, and it’s only $20. I have the one at the link.

Once onions, celery, and apples had been minced, I added a good pinch of salt, a few glugs of Enzo Bold EVOO, probably 3-4 tablespoons. Stirred it up, then added 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar, and probably should have done 2 tablespoons.

Still, very tasty, and now that I see how good my Veggichop is for this, I’ll be making it more often.
