Test Kitchen Tip: Beating Beet Stains

When cut, beets can bleed onto your cutting board, making it easy to discolor other foods you might be chopping next.  Instead of stopping to wash the board between uses, we have a better idea: give the cutting board’s surface a light coat of nonstick cooking spray before chopping.  This thin coating added no discernible slickness under our knife and allowed us to quickly wipe the board clean with a paper towel before proceeding with our next task.
