How to Julienne Potatoes

Save

Learn how to julienne, which is to cut a vegetable into very thin strips that are all the same size. It is sometimes referred to as "matchstick" style because the vegetables are about the same size and shape as a matchstick. For the best results, make sure you use a sharp chef's knife.
