There is a lot of food wastage in the kitchen and therefore money wastage. Often I will find food in the fridge that was perfectly good when it went in there but now is beyond the used by date or safe eating time and so it goes in the bin. In these days where nearly everyone has a freezer it is such a waste to not plan for the left overs to have a purpose.
Here are some of the wastage things from our kitchen that we make use from.
|Diced Onion ready for the freezer|
|Frozen left over pizza sauce|
|Left over wine - yes really!|
|Discarded broccoli stem|
|Trimmed and sliced broccoli stem|
|Muesli bars that didn't come out of the pan nicely|
Left over rice freezes quite well or can be turned into fried rice with just a few veggies from the fridge.
Vegetables can be made into soups if they are starting to look like they won't be used before they need to be thrown out. Then you can freeze the soup for another day.
Pumpkin and sweet potato can be cooked, mashed and frozen to add to cakes and to thicken soups.
Do you have things that you have found other uses for in your kitchen? I would love some more ideas.
