Hit Up Farmers’ Markets when Cooking for One [Saving Money]

12 Nov/09

Grocery stores are full of deals involving two-for-one, 30 percent more, family sizes, and other bulk deals. None of that helps, though, if the food goes to waste. The Washington Post suggests farmers’ markets, and creativity, for single cooks.

The article is framed around a farmers’ market tour with Judith Jones, the literary agent who rescued both The Diary of Anne Frank and Julia Child’s The Art of French Cooking. She’s written a new book about cooking for one, and, from experience, suggests community markets, farmer stands, and wherever else you can get up close and personal with purveyors as a way around food waste:

For singles, one of the best things about farmers markets is that so much of the produce and other products is sold loose or individually: no need to buy a whole bag of spinach when you can just scoop up however many leaves you’d like …
… Carrots? If you find yourself in possession of a bunch when you need just one, roast the remainder — this goes for all sorts of vegetables — and then use them throughout the week: in hashes, in salads, over pasta, in soups or even as a vegetarian roll-up sandwich with a little dressing.

The article’s got a few great recipes for using good pork, and a few other inspirational moments. What’s the best food-saving move you’ve pulled off in your kitchen? Swap the stories in the comments.
