Cutting Corners at the Grocery Store : Part 2

I am all about saving money at the grocery store. I have been finding cost saving ways for so much time now that I often don’t think about them. Here are a few of my favorites that were brought to my attention by my summer house guest.


Garlic: I bought it bulk and split it a few ways: Roasting: cutting off the heads of a few, I drizzle with olive oil until they are roasted. These are easy to use in marinades and salad dressing Minced. I often will minch half a bag. Remove skin and pop cloves in a food processor for instant mixed garlic without the price tag of a jar.I also find it great to just keep some whole for crushed garlic and for stuffing poultry.


Bell peppers:  I buy them in bulk and will roast several at a time they add pop to almost any dish and are cheaper than the jars.


Cheese: We are cheese people, and we will always buy it at Costco you just get more bang that way. We have a shredder with multiple sides and will shred according to what the recipe calls for. We also don’t mind slicing it to our needs for sandwiches or snacks.


Herbs: I plant what I love. This summer it is mint, rosemary, basil, and cilantro. Nothing beats going out to the garden and gathering what you need.


How are you saving money in the kitchen?

  1. When I cooked the curries I would make garlic paste in bulk; I also pushed some cloves and rosemary into the skin of roast lamb. The Culinary Queen is so much better a cook, so I don’t do it now 🙂
