Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
Canned vegetables almost always have salt in them. Check the can carefully.
Depending on the vegetable, it is usually better to buy frozen vegetables because they seldom have added salt. Most are frozen right at the field where they are picked. Because of being frozen so soon after being picked many actually have more nutrients than fresh vegetables.
