Re: The 'I Need a Recipe' Thread

Try seeing if your local delis or groceries with deli sections sell "scrap" bags of cheese rinds. Parmesan rinds impart a surprisingly rich, meaty flavor to stew IIRC. Just pull the rinds out at the end, like bay leaves.

I believe coconut macaroons use only the whites. They can also be used (beaten stiff) instead of leavening in pancake batter.

The skin of the cucumbers was included, that was probably to blame.
