Learn how to julienne carrots, easily and quickly! With these simple steps below, you'll learn how to cut carrots into slender sticks that are perfect for salads, sandwiches, soups, and so much more!
Julienning seems like such a difficult cutting technique, but it really isn't. Especially when you have Calphalon Precision Self-Sharpening knives to help you get the job done. I've been using these knives for a few months now, ever since I became a Calphalon Cook, and haven't had to sharpen them - not even once. There's this mechanism in the knife block that self-sharpens the knives every time you remove it from the block. It's a freaking dream!
Needless to say, I've enjoyed learning a bunch of new cutting techniques, and how to julienne is certainly one of them!
So, how do you julienne carrots?
First things first, you need a nice sharp knife and a potato peeler. Skin the carrot with the peeler to rid the carrot of the top layer of skin. (like in the picture below) This ensures that the carrots are nice and smooth once they're julienned.
