Adobo

Dave | Mar 2, 2005 02:27 PM

Is there a reason why every recipe I've seen calling for peppers in adobo sauce only calls for one or two when the can has at least a dozen of them? Is this a scam by the adobo company to get us to buy more? Is there a way I can store the other peppers indefinitely once the can is opened? Are the cans only getting bigger? And, dare I ask, is there a dish out there that calls for an entire can?
Back in days of yore, my mother was convinced that the sock companies were also colluding against us by selling socks with different colored stipes on them, so that if you lose/destroy one, you're out two socks.

We shouldn't have to put up with this.

What are your opinions and/or suggestions?

Thanks,
