This popped up on the BBC news site today: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/ar...nroe-why-we-should-cook-more-with-tinned-food It reminded me of a time when I lived in a bed-sit in a then not-so-nice area of London. There was only one light bulb and only one plug socket in the place, so no place for a fridge, and the gas cooker was outside on a covered balcony! Because I worked full-time, I had no choice but to eat tinned foods except for Saturday and Sunday when I could go to the market. Luckily times have changed, but there are several tinned foods which I still use. Pulses / beans / chickpeas - mainly because I don't decide what to eat until the day, so I rarely have a chance to soak dried ones. Tomatoes - of course - I usually get through 2 cans a week Baked beans Peaches for when I don't have any fresh fruit for dessert. I also have some tinned fish - for the cats and the dog.
