I did not know this, and I read both Anna and Leila faithfully for household tips like this. I am going to try it, especially the gingersnaps part, YUM!
Kathy, if you search on Leila's blog for "crumbs blender" you will get the post for chicken lightly seasoned, and that's where she says it. Not the wide-mouth jars, but the others.
Wow! This is a great idea. Does it only work for dry things? What yummy confection did you make with the gingersnap crumbs?
I'm guessing you can use it for anything - you are using the same screw-on part. Just remember to turn it upside down before unscrewing! :DI made a cheesecake and made a gingersnap crust rather than a graham cracker one. It's the time of year, I guess. I used store-bought, one and a quarter cups crumbs (about 7cookies), one quarter cup of sugar, mixed with a half stick of melted butter. It does tend to stick in the pan - I guess because g-snaps have more sugar?
Sadly, this won't work with mine - I could use something smaller and tighter than what I've got, for breadcrumbs!
Oh, is it only American blenders which can do this? Too bad.
