If you’re a loyal follower and consumer of our beeswax wraps and bags, you will already know that our main goals as a business are to reduce food waste and be more environmentally conscious overall.
Making sure less food goes to waste is quite easy when you think about it.
A starting point is to make a devised shopping list each time you go do the weekly shop to ensure that you are only buying exactly what you need. Not only is this a great way to budget, but it also helps eradicate the temptation to put unnecessary products in the trolley.
If you are looking for a way to use up your leftover fruits and vegetables to avoid throwing them away, consider some of our nifty kitchen scrap recipe ideas.
Bake a delicious fruit crumble
Suppose you have leftover apples, blackberries, or raspberries in the fridge that are starting to turn. A quick, easy, and delicious way to use them up is to bake a tasty crumble for the family.
The great thing about fruit crumble is that you can pretty much use any fruit and it will taste amazing. Serve with custard or ice cream and you’ll have yourself the perfect comforting snack if your sweet tooth comes along unannounced.
Be sure to cover leftovers with one of our super handy beeswax wraps and it’ll stay yummy for days.
Stick a pot of comforting soup on the stove
Soup is a super easy and rewarding recipe for the reason that a range of flavours and ingredient combinations can be used.
Whatever you have left in the fridge, chuck it in - within reason of course!
Leftover broccoli and cheese? Try broccoli and stilton soup. Few spare slices of ham and some peas going to waste? Pea and ham it is!
The possibilities are practically endless when it comes to soup, so make a delicious home comfort that will last for days. Remember to cover with one of our large beeswax wraps to ensure it stays tasty for as long as it can.
Make a beautiful tangy jam
Another inventive way to use up leftover fruit is to make a delicious fruit jam.
If you’re unable to eat berries before they start going mushy, turn them into jam! Jam can be kept in the fridge for some time before it needs eating or can even be popped in the freezer until you’re feeling ready for it.
Even better, you can cover jam jars with a beeswax wrap to keep the germs out and the goodness in until you’re ready to enjoy some on a slice of crusty bread.
