I'm starting a feature of tips that can help your cooking. It might be a time saving technique or a unique way to use an ingredient.
Today's tip involves the leftover rinds from hard cheese such as Parmesan and Pecorino Romano. When I get down to the end, I stash the piece in a ziploc in the freezer. I use the pieces of rind to flavor soups and stews. It adds a nice depth of flavor and a salty note. Give it a try!
