Tuna Can Flim-Flam

If I see one more recipe that suggests subsituting a tuna can for a pastry or muffin ring, why I’ll…

Maybe ten or fifteen years ago you could have done it: cut the bottom out of a can to make a cheap and easy mold. But not anymore. No, packaging designers have seen to that. In the interests of stackability there are no longer grippable lips on the bottoms of the cans. It’s a farce I tell you! A cruel, sadistic farce.

Try salmon cans. They’re about the same size. And some expensive imported brands of tuna still have the lips. But for that amount of money you might as well buy the real thing. A set of four is cheaper than even one can of expensive eye-talian tuna.
