SPARE extra wire in Portable Cord

If I'm using portable SO Cord - let's say 10/4 and I only really am using 10/3 - what is the proper way on dealing with the extra wire (aside from running out and buying 10/3 wire).

Can I just cut it flush to the outer jacket or do I bend it *over* the outside jacket and wrap a couple of wraps with electrical tape ? Or is both just code....
