Last but not least, there are so many creative ways in which to use your leftovers, so in our final part six of our blog series #6. Use what is Left, we have some recommendations on how you can give your scraps a second life.
6. Use what is left
There are many creative ways to use leftovers, and even the parts that you would usually toss in the garbage.
*Freezing leftover’s for another meal or using it to help create an entirely new meal.
*Saving the remaining parts of the vegetables like the stems and roots, and storing them in a bag in the freezer. When the bag is full you can boil the contents and then strain it to make a delicious vegetable broth for soup. Authentic, yum!
*Saving your food scraps for your vegetable garden or herb patch – learn to compost – your garden will love you back with more delicious, nutritious produce. Or, tossing your scraps to your chickens, they will happily supply you with fresh free-range eggs!
*Passing on the tempting bulk deal. We know it is hard to pass up a good deal when you see one, but bulk buying often leads to a lot of wastage, so unless you plan on sharing with someone then try to ‘buy as you need’ instead.
*Turning produce that has softened a little too much into delicious soups, jams and crumbly deserts. The flavor is often amplified as they age!
