Reason #387: Why preserving food is so awesome…

Reason #387:  …Because you will fall down on your knees, weeping with pleasure, from the taste of last season’s tomatoes when early spring finally arrives.  Your canned salsa will give you hope that summer will appear once again.

Ok, this is a little melodramatic… but homemade salsa does help when it comes time to eating leftovers.  This afternoon I was looking at a pretty empty fridge – some leftover baked beans, eggs, sprouts, and the usual condiments – and inspiration hit!

I took the leftover beans and added some garlic-chili paste, and mashed them up a bit.  I spread this on some warm corn tortilla, and topped it with some scrambled eggs, salsa, and sprouts.


Do you have any stories of using up your leftovers in creative ways that turned out really great?  Share your stories in the comments below!

Yours in Food,
