Simple Tip: Make Vinaigrette in an Almost Empty Dijon Mustard Jar

Got an Almost Empty Jar of Mustard? Make Vinaigrette in It

The other day when I was cooking with a friend, she reached for the Dijon mustard. Since mustard is my favorite condiment, I use it often. This jar was almost empty except for about a tablespoon of mustard that was spread on the sides. "Save this. The next time you want Dijon vinaigrette, just make it in this jar," my friend said, placing the mustard back in the fridge. Genius! I love the idea of employing every last bit of the mustard and definitely plan on making the vinaigrette in the mustard container.

Nice tip! I definitely save bacon grease after straining a couple times--they keep well in old baby food jars. It calls for awesome potatoes, cornbread, stir-fry veggies, dressing eggs, etc. Basically use it in place of butter or olive oil for a lot of different dishes.

Similar, but with ketchup. Swish a small amount of water in the bottle, then add ingredients for BBQ sauce-mustard, brown, sugar, freshly ground pepper, Worcestershire, spices, etc.-and shake. Warm and thicken up a bit in a pan before using. And as always...save all manner of bacon grease *wiggling eyebrows*
