As the story goes, the national chef for the home stuff store, Sur La Table, decided to save some used coffee grounds. He mixed them with brown sugar, chili, cumin and coriander, then rubbed the mix on a pork shoulder.

US News and World Report writer Anna Medaris Miller found seven other food scraps that experts believe are perfectly reusable.
