Canned veggies. Drained or not

So in our house, we always have such meaningful conversations. Sitting here tonight watching the snow fly and our topic is canned vegetables.....to drain or not to drain. I always drain the liquid off of the corn or peas or whatever and add a little butter before I cook them. My elderly aunt that lives with us likes them cooked in the liquid. My wife will not eat any canned vegetables, they have to be fresh or frozen because she claims she doesn't like the salt, but she has always been difficult.

Anyway, so I ask you, do you drain or not before cooking?

Drain the liquid, add the butter! Then a quick trip to the microwave.

None of that agreeing with my wife talk. She doesn't need any encouragement.

We have a couple of these Pampered Chef plastic Micro Cookers with vented lids. One can and 2 min in the microwave and they are perfect.

We bring both canned and frozen when traveling/camping. Drain the canned after heating, then add the butter/seasoning. And hopefully I've not mistakenly picked up the "Low" or "No Sodium" cans as I will certainly hear about that... At home we keep a reasonable stock of cans on hand but prefer fresh from farmers market when in season or frozen.

The only time I drain is when I'm doctoring up a couple cans of black eyed peas. I use the juice from the tomatoes and bacon grease I sautéed all the goodies in first

We are, currently, making an effort to use more fresh vegetables, but the canned version do have a certain appeal for camping.

I drain - and often rinse - before cooking, because I find that gets rid of most of the "canned" taste.

Rinse. The only canned veggies I use is cut green beans (blue lake) - large can for large group. I drain and rinse a lot, saute up some onions in salted pork fat, add salt and pepper and large table spoon of sugar. Cover with water and cook them forever in a stock pot or crock pot. I also cook fresh green beans this way. You cannot tell the difference between the two. This is great for a cookout or camping. Otherwise, I do not like to use canned veggies but if I do use I always rinse.

For those of you that are using fresh vegetables while you are camping, do you bring them with you or do you shop locally? I'm one of those people that just want to have everything I need with me so I really don't have to leave camp unless we have a destination that we want to visit. Bringing canned with us just makes it easier to store.
