While mine comes in handy from time-to-time, I’ve also found some other uses for the rolling pin too! Some of my favorites include:
- Flatten meat. You can use your rolling pin to flatten chicken or even pound meat to a uniform thickness.
- Grind nuts or crush crackers. If you just need a few nuts crumbs for a topping – try grinding them under the rolling pin crush them up. This works best on softer nuts such as walnuts or peanuts, but it’ll work with most, if you apply a bit more pressure. For crackers – put them in a small plastic bag before you begin rolling to be sure you collect all the tiny crumbs.
- Back rub. Outside of the kitchen, ask your husband or wife to use the rolling pin to relieve the stress of the day. It works great!
