When making pesto, chimichurri, or other savory sauces in my blender, I was always nicking rubber spatulas while attempting to push all the herbs and ingredients down into the blades. One day, I stumbled on the idea of using a stalk of celery, which lets me safely push everything toward the blades (when the blender is not running) without scratching my utensil.
