i usually want my ingredients fresh because they give out a more full flavor but sometimes im too lazy to prepare it, sometimes its more convenient to just open up a can. do you often buy your ingredients fresh or just buy them canned or do you mix both?

I buy most of my vegetables fresh, the only ones I buy in a can are corn, mushrooms and beans. I prefer fresh ingredients, they taste more and have a bit of a crunch that most canned veggies don't have.

my mom has those canned food in stock too, for some reason though, my taste buds seemed to prefer the canned mushrooms and the canned corn more than the fresh ones ^^;

hi gypsygoth, on my part i would rather have the fresh ingredients, why? because canned usually has additional ingredients that makes it different from the fresh ingredient :)

Hi! I usually mixed the ingredients, fresh and preserved. But I prefer the fresh ones because of the many advantages of this stuff. As we all know preserved products has some added ingredients that may cause the consumers to be sick but on the other hand it's convenient and instant esp for busy people.

Fresh is a 100% better, but I find myself buying a lot of canned products. They are more readily available and in most cases cheaper.

Hi there. I tend to use both at times. It really depends on what Im cooking. There are times when i will go out to the garden to pick fresh herbs or veges and there are times where I will go to the local and buy a can of something, what ever it is I may need...

i buy fresh and canned ingredients for cooking, fresh ingredients specially veggies has a little life span. so i have to cook it at once. the fresh ones are the ones i cook first before they get rotten.
