Don’t you love how the supermarkets like to “face” the maximally processed foods, pushing them to the edge of the shelf and advertising side forward? I like to put them back with the nutrition panel forwards instead! But I’m not that effective because I don’t spend much time in those isles anymore.
Now I found an old fashioned market (not a supermarket) that hardly has any packaged foods, just basic single ingredient ones like rice in a vacuum pack, dried fruit in a box, dried beans in a box, etc. They mostly have fresh produce and also some cheese, some pickled/brined foods, and then the dried foods, that’s all so simple! Over 70% of the store is devoted to fresh produce and the whole place is refrigerated. I have to go elsewhere for milk and meat.
I recently discovered cannellini beans, yum! I add salt when soaking them. I saw some at the Pompeii exhibit in the recovered artifacts, so they are old enough that your great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother could recognize them.
I saw Goya’s hot sauce, they put dyes in it, it looks Christmas red, instead of tomato sauce red. Goya is good sometimes, but tsk tsk tsk on their hot sauce.
I wonder, how does one hydrogenate oil?
