Do you know that on average an "empty" mustard container contains about 2-3 teaspoons of mustard in it still? Imagine in a lifetime how much mustard you might be throwing away? And while you may not miss the pennies in the short term, over a lifetime you're basically tossing money right into the garbage bin.
Instead of tossing your empty mustard containers, why not rinse them into a marinade?
First, measure up a 1/2 cup of wine of choice. Bring out your "empty" mustard container and pour in a little bit of the wine. Close her up and shake. You'll bring out all of the residual mustard left in the container. Pour it into your mix. Voila! You've saved a few pennies rinsing your mustard out and you'll have a fantastic marinade to boot.
What you will need:
- An "empty" mustard container
- 1/2 cup wine
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 ounce apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 ounce soy sauce
