Do you throw food away every week?


Just a housewife!Many of us throw food away on a regular basis and mostly this is fresh vegetables which have been stored too long. My little trick is to wash, dry and chop up any veg I think I might not be able to use in time. This prepared food is then stored in plastic food bags and popped in the freezer. I find there is no need to blanche most of these foods. I’ve stored carrots, swede, leeks, cauliflower, green beans, onions (red and brown), sugar snap peas and most other firm veg. These ready prepared vegetables are ideal for use in soups as well as just served as side vegetables. Even fresh herbs can be popped in the freezer. Waste nothing edible; even broccoli and cauliflower stalks not usually served with the florets can be chopped and frozen for soups. What a time saver they can be too when you need veg in a hurry.

What food saving tips do other bloggers use?

My husband calls me a butterfly because I flit from one hobby to another. Apart from being a wife for 52 years, a mother of three sons, and a grandmother, I'm also an author, genealogist, amateur artist, a lover of most needlecrafts, and occasional poet. Of the above, my most enduring interest has been writing and I hope to be doing it well into old age.
