Did you hear how much had been spent over the last three weeks on food?
AN EXTRA ONE BILLION POUNDS ON SUPERMARKET SHOPPING, this is in addition to what we normally spend!
Can you imagine just how much food there is in some homes right now…...worse still, can you image how much food waste there’s going to be!
In normal times we are not the best of countries when avoiding food waste, so perhaps this is the time for change. By doing so, our food will go further, and we’ll be saving money..so not all bad!
It’s a good time to start working with our freezers, the majority of homes must have one, going by the empty freezers in supermarkets!
Almost all fruit and veg can be frozen, it just takes a little preparation, but it’s easy.
Today I froze half a cauliflower and some broccoli, I could have left them in the fridge, but have other fresh veg that needs to be eaten first.
Preparation For Cauliflower (broccoli is exactly the same)
I used the outer leaves of the cauli last night, cut up and added to a curry instead of using spinach, and it was delicious.
