How Can I Use My Cheese Rinds? Good Questions

Faith Durand

Q: Every week at the grocery store, I see cheese rinds (mostly of parmesan cheese) available for purchase. It also seems like a waste throwing my own rinds away.

I've watched Food TV shows that say these are good to keep for use in soups and stews, but have never come across a recipe that calls for them. Do you have any good uses or ideas?
