The quantities of food that are wasted are spectacular with the US figure at $165bn (40% of all food) and Scotland alone coming in with £1bn a year(a fifth of all food!).
There are many reasons for this with the ridiculous quality control police being high on the list. The US article above quotes: “A packer of citrus, stone fruit, and grapes estimated that 20% to 50% of the produce he handles is unmarketable but perfectly edible”.
For this blog however, we’re interested in ideas for when you get something that you don’t know what to do with or don’t know how to get the best out of it. Sometimes there’s too much and you need to spend just a little time preparing and freezing or doing something different so that you don’t feel you’re eating the same thing every night.
We’ve got a load of cooking apples ready do be picked in the garden. What do I do with them?
