How to Chop Nuts—and Keep Them From Rolling Around
When chopping round nuts (like macadamia nuts) with your chef’s knife, the nuts have a tendency to fly right off the cutting board, making a dangerous mess. Here's a simple way to chop nuts and keep them from rolling around.
To solve this problem, place them in a resealable bag, then strike them with the smooth side of a meat mallet (a hammer works too). The nuts stay put—and they're chopped in no time!
