    The only thing I use it for is when I make hams but I don't do that very often. As a result everytime I grab it out of the pantry it's a brick. I buy the small boxes but I always end up throwing out a 90% full container.

    We use marshmallows, but bread heels work just as well.

    He’s not. I would use them as well, but my favorite peanut butter sandwich involves both heels.
