Cheese – Parmesan rind: should I use it, or trash it


I grate my own Parmesan cheese (and others). When I get down to the rind, I usually throw it out. Is there a use for it?

Best Answer

Yes, you can save it and add it to soups such as Minestrone for additional flavor. Once the soup is done, remove and discard the rind. For extended storage, keep it in a bag in the freezer until you have need for it.
