The farmer in me also makes it hard for me to throw things away. Everything on our farm used to used; my mother would always have one eye on the next meal. If you had a chicken, the carcass would be boiled up for soup. When the pig was killed the fat would be rendered down and kept in jars for frying. If something gives you flavour, I find it very wasteful to throw it away.–Richard Corrigan, The Clatter of Forks and Knives
