What to do with odd items in pantry, freezer,etc.
Since Booberry suggested I start this thread, I will begin with the question: What odd ingredients do you have in storage that you do not now know how to use? Since I am at work, I cannot check to see, but I think I can remember a few:
Yuzu lemons (still on the tree, but I will freeze them soon - see photo)
Leftover orange sauce (from duck)
1-1/2 quart (not Gallon!) can of sesame oil (I use it for a few things, but how will I use the gallon I just bought?)
Dende oil (Brazilian palm oil)
I'll have to look for more when I get home.
I use sesame oil in a lot of Japanese dishes plus hummus, but that's about it. I use quite a bit in hummus, however, which is why I bought large quantity, and it was cheap.
I have some beans that I cannot identify - maybe I will photograph them - or else just cook them and eat them like any other bean. I have a lot of ingredients that do not have many uses, but they all seems to have at least one!
