Ever wondered how to cube food? The definition of “cube” is: to cut a solid into cubes of 1/8 to 1/4 inch.
You can use these instructions for anything you want to cube, but I’ll show you how to do it with an apple:
1. Peel your apple
2. Cut the four quarters of the apple off the core.
3. Take one of the quarters and slice it into 1/4 inch wide slices.
4. Turn the quarter onto its side and make another 1/4 inch wide slice.
Your quarter should now be cut into four, 1/4 inch wide “sticks”.
5. Slice along the sticks in 1/4 inch increments so you have cubes.
If you want to get really fancy, and not have any rounded corners, slice a quarter like above,
but discard the outer, rounded slice.
Turn the quarter on it’s side, and make a couple more 1/4 inch slices.
Discard the outer, rounded edges,
and cube per usual!
Cubing an apple literally takes 30 more seconds to do than if I were to just chop the apple up, and it makes everything so pretty!
