This is a great article. I had 4 or 5 immediately jump to mind, and you nailed them all. And all the others are solid choices, too. Read more

We can our own corn (and beans, tomatoes, etc) but not everyone has the time, and we never can enough! Canned corn from the supermarket has always tasted aces for us. I have never enjoyed pineapple that is not fresh, though. If I’m cooking with it, yes, but I’ve always preferred it cut up.

This should have been listed with the jalapenos, absolutely. Better, though. I also may be leaning into pedant territory, but jalapenos from a can are typically garbage compared to those in a jar - at least, from what I’ve found. The article probably means both, but still.

Frozen corn is massively better than canned. Canned corn isn’t bad fishing bait though.

In addition to chipotles, I also love canned green chiles. One small can of green chiles + one can of black beans = delicious side dish.

I love canned pineapple for cooking. Dole started selling 8 oz cans of pineapple in juice (I never buy canned fruit in syrup), which is the perfect amount to add to a Thai-style curry.

I am sorry, but no. Fresh pineapple is amazingly more flavorful than anything I have ever had from a can. I have lived in California and Texas, and have still been able to find ripe, fresh pineapple to cut up and enjoy.

I’m a big sardine booster - my favorite way to eat them is tossed, along with their oil, with lemon juice, crispy romaine, thinly sliced red onion, grape tomatoes, and chick peas (another can!). Delicious and nutritious.

Our canned food is nothing compared to the conservas in Spain and Portugal.

Would stuffed shells be like lasagna or it’s own BDSM scenario. Same for manicotti.

Damn, this brought out some feels. My ex got me a pasta roller attachment, and he used to go to town on whatever I made. Butternut squash and roasted garlic ravioli, linguine with tomato-tarragon cream sauce, lasagna with broccoli rabe and homemade red sauce... Read more

Where (dare I ask) do we file linguine with clam sauce ?

An Italian man I had a one-night stand with asked me on a real date made me red sauce he cooked for like 12 hours. It is still one of the most thoughtful things anyone has done for me.

I’m having vivid flashbacks to the boyfriend who was a professional chef and as his seduction power move early on made us a dinner of lobster ravioli from scratch. And yes we were super in love for a long while but also yes he turned out to be a massive alcoholic and coke head.
