Kitchen Hint: Cleaning the Food Processor Blade

While I was blending up some basil for the freezer tonight it occurred to me that there is a simple way to clean the blade I’d like to share with you. Whether its basil or hummus when it comes time to clean out the food processor the blade can be tricky. Its very sharp, or should be, and can nick a rubber spatula. The solution? Just clean out the food that you can get to easily. With the processor nearly empty turn it on for a few seconds. The centrifugal force will send the remaining food to the side of the bowl leaving the blade clean. Easy!
