Cooking Basics

Satoimo/Japanese taro - wiping away sliminess

Once peeled, quickly rinse under cold water, then use a clean and dry dish cloth to wipe away any sliminess. Using paper towel is also convenient. For dishes where some thickness (sliminess) is welcome, such as stewed dishes, this is a commonly used method.

Celery - removing the strings

Strings in celery stalks are tough. Use a knife to pull the strings off starting from the lower half of the stalk. When slicing up thinly or diagonally, you do not need to remove these in advance as you will be cutting through the strings anyway.
