Test Kitchen tips: Save those Parmigiano rinds

February 9, 2011 |  7:16 pm

Photo Next time you think you've grated all the cheese you can off of a wedge of Parmigiano, don't discard the rind.

Freeze it.

The rinds are excellent when you want to add extra flavor and richness to stews and soups, and many slow-simmered dishes. Just take a rind out of the freezer and steep it in the pot with whatever you're cooking. It'll add just a little more love to the dish.
