    Stemming and de-seeding roasted poblano peppers. Discovered a bowl of water works great for getting the seeds off your hands and the pepper.

    Picking crab. Haven't found a good technique for cleaning the bodies. I've got a decent leg technique though.
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Dried peppers for me. Or fresh criolla sella peppers.

    The best technique for picking blue crab bodies is making good friends with someone that owns a picking house and buying well priced jumbo lump. Unless I'm eating crabs for fun, picking the bodies is a job to be outsourced.

    dude, uragoshi. It took me 5 hours once to get a giant pot of azuki beans through.
    also,
    there's this crazy seaweed can't remember what its called but its super goopy teeny tiny strands like hair and you have to clean out baby shrimps the size of needle heads. that sucked the worst maybe.

    +1 for cleaning mussels. Such a terrible job but a single grain of sand just ruins everything.

    I also just absolutely hate peeling small potatoes. And jerusalem artichokes.
    Don't drink out of ornamental ponds in Tiergarten. You will get sick.

    Also, I should try this. I'm always trying to sneak raw celery into things in a non offensive way. Little slivers of this with some sort of anchovy dressing, maybe on some pork?
