Last summer my husband was cutting a wonderful, delicious pineapple. In my haste to taste the sweet fruit, I grabbed the last piece that was sitting on the cutting board and popped it into my mouth. MMMmmmm.....erm... garlic pineapple... blech! Then in November, after we had made salsa and cleaned up, I was cutting up some cookie dough and just couldn't resist a small taste....mMmmm...errrmm... jalapeno cookie dough.
Even after washing the cutting boards, those strong flavors that I otherwise love were determined to ruin my other yummies. Enough! I remembered seeing a brilliant craftster solution (I am so sorry - I can't find the original post to give credit) - designated cutting boards. So - guess what my husband got for the holidays?

I burned the images into the cutting boards. I haven't done wood burning in forever. I will say that the grain on the cutting boards gave me a little bit of trouble and it isn't the most professional looking thing, but if it keeps me from ever eating another garlic pineapple again, it is worth it! (and my husband loved it!)

It is a great idea - it is also very good to keep meat and vegetables on separate cutting boards, for health reasons. And you made them very pretty.

Very cute! Definitely a great way to keep your juices from intermingling Cheesy

If I may, I'd like to suggest periodically sanitizing your wooden cutting boards with vinegar. After washing, I just splash some on each side and let it sit for a few minutes in the sink before rinsing with very hot water.

These look great.  I like that you have one for strong flavored veggies, I've had way too many onion flavored apples  Undecided

I am so glad that you like it! I am thrilled to think that I may help someone avoid the fantastic taste sensations of garlic/onion/jalapeno flavored fruits!
