Food Processor

Postby Charlene D on Fri Dec 28, 2012 7:01 pm

Hello, I received a food processor for Christmas (thank you santa!). I just used it to make salsa and guacamole. I really feel it is easier by hand to make these items as I like my salsa a bit chunkier. What do you use your food processor for? My sis-in-law says she can't live without hers and I am not sure why? :?

I use it when I need a large quantity of something (sliced carrots for soup or grated potatoes for latkes, for example). It isn't worth my while to get it out and then clean it afterward if I only need a small quantity. I also use it for chopping things like onions and nuts, grating potatoes, mixing dips, slicing large numbers of carrots, making peanut butter, etc. When I make strawberry ice cream in the summer I use the food processor to puree the strawberries and the heavy cream, so the cream becomes slightly whipped.

For large amounts of:

grated carrots & zucchinis
grated cheese
chopped onions
salsa fresca

lots of other things I'm sure, but haven't had my coffee yet so brain isn't up to speed! :o
