A PROFESSIONAL chef has shared her method for cutting bell peppers quickly and without a mess.
Chef Kelly Scott used to work for a meal prep company and said she and her fellow cooks all used the same slicing technique to chop peppers in a hurry.
"I used to work at a high-end meal prep company where we would cut literally hundreds of pounds of bell peppers and I found this to be the fastest way," Chef Kelly said.
She started out with the pepper on its side on a cutting board and used a sharp knife.
"First, cut off the end with the root and stem, slicing the top from the rest of the vegetable," she said.
She demonstrated, cutting off the top end of pepper – including the stem and some edible pepper flesh.
