This morning I have been looking at my food stores and removing anything looking past it's best. In the past I haven't done this and ended up throwing away a lot of food from the fridge, especially salad and veg or fresh cream.
These apples were looking a bit soft and yellow, so I peeled, cored and chopped them (with Daisy's help...her eating knife not a sharp one) and put them on to simmer. Daisy will love stewed apple and custard later (a lot of the retro puddings I have been making contain double cream which I cannot buy lactose free) and I can make apple crumble for the freezer too.
The cores and peelings will be enjoyed by our chickens.
The bits and bobs I took out of the fridge will be used up at lunchtime and go into our tea.
A little time taken to save money by not wasting it!
How much food do you end up throwing away...or is nothing wasted?
Thanks for reading,
