I remember when I first started out as a food editor almost ten years ago. I was determined to come up with a bunch of unique, creative ideas and ways to use up chametz in the weeks leading up to Passover.
A few years smarter, I know that creative recipes are not necessarily what we are looking for, but rather quick, easy, and most importantly, efficient ways to use up chametz. (Your days are hectic, you’re probably not going to start grinding your own breadcrumbs for schnitzel.) The recipes in this newsletter are super simple ways to use up your chametz, and you’ve just killed two birds with one stone!
