Tom Kerridge shares best ingredient for cheap cooking – 'works really well'

He continued: “Once it goes all crispy, you can keep it in a Tupperware in the fridge to use later or use straight away.

“Once you add it to a sauce, it rehydrates, but you’ve already got that really concentrated flavour.”

Tom’s final tip for saving money on food was to “buy twice the amount” at the supermarket – “if you can”.

This may mean spending more in the short term, but in the long run this is an excellent money saver if done properly.

“Batch-cook meals like shepherd’s pie or soups to keep in the freezer to save on utilities.”
