The chopper comes pre-assembled (thank goodness) and you just pop it out of the package. There aren’t any instructions – but I figured it out – after a couple of tries anyway! 🙂
I’m a sprawling cook for sure – I am never neat or organized. I cover the counter with everything I need before I get started. You can’t even see the two pots of water boiling (for pasta/eggs). OYE! Thankfully the dishwasher was empty so I could put stuff right in there (thanks honey!).
When you’re done – just pop off the gray tray and the clear cup – the rest falls open so you can easily rinse in the sink – then you’re done! It took about 1 minute to clean the whole thing! Love that!
So along the way in the recipe (see below) – up to this point – I have crab, cheese, celery and onion in a big giant bowl. On the stove are the shells and the eggs. Then in a separate bowl I’m mixing together sour cream/mayo, chow chow (or relish), sugar and salt/pepper. What’s chow chow?
Basically – relish. I didn’t have any relish but I had this – so I just substitute it. It’s a little zingier but other than that – not much different. It’s in the salsa section with the other Mrs. Renfros products.
After your sauce is mixed – you pour it into the dry ingredients and stir it all up. I also made a mini-batch without eggs because of my husband’s egg allergy. How? I waited to add in the eggs until the very end and mixed up a tupperware bowl full with just sour cream and then added in the mayo to the rest of the batch after.
