After using the last of your Parmesan cheese on a big spaghetti dinner, don’t throw out the container! Wash and dry it thoroughly, then repurpose it as a powdered sugar shaker. It’s perfect for sweetening your french toast and dusting the tops of cupcakes or other confections.
That container is also convenient, says Yahoo contributor Tricia Gross, for keeping flour at hand:
If you do a lot of baking from scratch, you can repurpose a parmesan container by filling it with flour. This is ideal when you need to dust a surface before rolling out dough or you want to grease and flour a baking pan. You can use it when your dough requires just a little more flour, as well.
Finally, if you are looking for a little something special for your morning cup of coffee, fill that container with cinnamon to “turn your ordinary cup into a spicy and aromatic gourmet coffee” with this recipe from Country Living.
