What is your favorite cook's treat?

In case you don't know the term, a cook's treat is any little odds and ends or "waste" materials that you snack on while cooking. A couple of my favorites:

- little crispy bits of anything in the saute pan if I'm not going to deglaze
- weirdly, I like to drink any liquid left in the pot after wilting greens, even strong ones like mustard greens

I mentioned another one over in this post about a grapefruit crudo I made recently.

So what do you secretly snack on? C'mon, tell!
