For those times you have a recipe/cooking/food question that does not fit anywhere else.

I have been thinking of using baby corns in some dinners. Not kernels but tiny cobs of corn.

I have seen them canned. Is that the only (best?) way to buy them? Iím not a big fan of canned veggies in general.

We used to get them jarred which was tastier than canned.  None of the kids are fans and DH is meh, so I really haven't tried again in many years. 

I do tend to rinse and rerinse canned veggies.  With the exception of canned green beans which I adore - don't throw shoes at me.

I've only seen them alone canned or jarred, and I'm not a huge fan of them that way.  I like them when I cook from frozen, but I have only ever seen them that way in a stir fry veggie mix.

What do you do with leftover gravy?  I know that sounds ridiculous to some people, but I cook a lot of whole cuts of meat and end up with a lot of extra gravy. 

I will eat it over toast sometimes for cheap country food, but I don't think that I could convince anyone aside from DS to do that.

I made a pork roast and the gravy is so, so good.  But I have maybe 3 times as much gravy as I have meat left right now.

Thanks for the answers. :)

As for left over gravy....

Beef gravy I would use for hot hamburger sandwiches. Or meat loaf or Shepardís pie.

Pork gravy, maybe use on mashed potatoes with pork chops.

You could freeze the gravy for a future meal, where you donít normally make a gravy. 

Iíve never cooked with the baby corns.  I remember being a very young child, maybe preschool years, and they had them on the relish trays at a party.  I ate them like a big ear of corn, and gave the family a laugh.

Fresh baby ears of corn...yummy!  Salads, stir fries, stews, cut up in soups.  I use canned only if fresh is not available.

I freeze gravy in ice cube trays and then transfer to ziplock.  Great to toss into dinner when I don't have time to make gravy, great to toss into shepard's pie, etc....  And sometimes we thaw to put on baked potatoes.
