... if they are being served as a separate veg, batons every time.

 

Circles always here because it's quicker.

 

I bet you're one of those posh folk who cut your toast into triangles too :hihi:

In casseroles I leave them round, but if they are being served as a separate veg, batons every time.

 

Snap.

 

I think the main reason why batons are preferred when served as a separate veg is that when cut in a circular manner, they resemble the chunder chunks that always appear when you hurl.

I always used to do batons but now I do chunks I can't stand carrots overcooked and find by chopping them in chunks rather than just slicing works best for me.

Batons for dips, for veg we tend to roast them and I do an angled off centre cut that's hard to explain, just twist them round as you cut and slice at one inch intervals, not inline with the previous cut. A good glaze of honey and give em a good roast, I like to do parsnips with them in the same method. Mmmmmmmm.

Yes that's what I do posh chunks if you like.

Batons for salads and stir frys, chunky circles for casseroles etc, slimmer circles for a side of veg :)

Nothing as common as triangles, I use various shaped cutters, hearts, stars etc, and always cut the crusts off. :roll:

 

Dead posh me. :hihi:
