Over an hour of chopping and this is what you get.
The most unbelievable tool for chopping tough herbs like Rosemary. That said it is without a doubt the most dangerous kitchen tool I've ever used. Those round blades are like razors. It is impossible to grab it or clean it without putting downward pressure on the rounded plastic and risking slipping right onto the blades. The sides should be straight up and down. So if you're accident prone....don't buy one of these.
I took some seeds from the Butternuts. They were so superb that I just had to. They are grown in Central Saanich organically by Dan, so they may be better suited to this area than the seeds I've been using. In two years I've not managed one single squash.
