cheeseparing

Some Background:

Those familiar with William Shakespeare’s history play Henry IV may recall how the portly Falstaff remembered the thin Justice Shallow “like a man made after supper of a cheese-paring.” Falstaff’s unusual food simile is one not easily forgotten, and people began to associate “cheese-parings” (bits of cheese trimmed off a larger portion) with other things of little significance and value.
