Love Food, Hate Waste

love_food_hate_waste1Lately I’m loving, a UK government funded website full of great information about cutting down on your food waste. The site is full of great tips on what to do with leftovers, how to control portion size, and recipes.

There’s some handy advice on how to keep your food fresh for longer:

  • Freeze bananas

    Submitted by Andrea, Glasgow

    They go brown quite quickly so if you see them start to go speckly, put them in the freezer. I use a casserole dish, peal them, lay them flat and put the lid on, when they have frozen take it out and put them into bags. You can use frozen bananas in smoothies or bake them in the oven with a bit of honey dripped on top for a nice dessert. You could even defrost them and eat them raw, but you’d have to time this right and do it within half an hour.

It’s a very useful site, well worth a look. Check it out.
