The Versatile Grocery Store Aisle You Should Never Skip
By Juliet Kahn
No matter who you are or what you eat, everyone has those areas of the grocery store they tend to skip and those in which they linger. However, becoming a little too set in your ways regarding which sections you browse and which you ignore has its downsides because there’s a good chance you might be ignoring one of the most versatile and useful aisles of the entire store.
If you’re a person who generally avoids baking and everything that comes with it, you very likely will avoid the bakery section of a grocery store. Skipping the bakery section, however, will close you off from essential kitchen ingredients like herbs and spices, salad-enhancing nuts, and cornstarch, which is the key to crispy fried food.
You’ll also miss out on bakery section products like vanilla and cocoa, which are not just great for baking but can enhance the flavor of savory dishes like short ribs, pork tenderloin, and risotto. The bakery section also boasts a versatile selection of canned goods that include smoothie-friendly canned pumpkins and the coffee and soup game changer, evaporated milk.
