CHILLI FLAKES add a kick to everything!
BAKED BEANS on toasted sourdough (always keep a loaf in the freezer) with a fried egg plonked on top (perfect Sunday night supper)
PARMESAN a tiny amount has far reaching flavour (and rinds are great in soups/stews)
HOT HORSERADISH SAUCE add some to half fat creme fraiche, loosen with a little hot water – hey presto, a tasty low calorie salad dressing

REDCURRANT JELLY – use in sandwiches instead of mayo, or add to gravy and casseroles and a blob on the side of your plate is brilliant with roast chicken.
TINNED CHERRY TOMATOES more fun than plum tomatoes!
MAPLE SYRUP adds a special low calorie sweetness to fresh fruit
KETCHUP Heinz of course
