My zero food waste tips-part 2: fruit

Well in my opinion this is definitely an easier task than not wasting any veggies. fruit is the best: in any form-shape-color-size- flavor.

Like all fruit- of course, the best possible way would be to eat them fresh, but sometimes life just gets in the way and your apples get one tiny bump that deteriorates to that softening ugh big round spot that you bite into and regret waking up in the morning.

Don’t despair-the freezer does not discriminate the damage from the good apples. just cut the apple roughly (I don’t bother to peel it before), leave off the yellow-brown spot, and stick it in a zipper bag in the freezer for future use.

What future use? anything from apple pies to banana-apple shakes to crumble- come on- there is always a use for a good frozen apple.

same here with this lovely mango.

(except for the baking part- never tried baking mango-if you succeeded at that please share.)

mango- what a fruit. definitely made in heaven. shakes, ice creams, anything sweet and frozen will benefit from a mango that went too soft for plain raw eating.

Berries: such freezer-friendly creatures! just ziplock them and use straight from the freezer on top of muesli or in ice cream or shakes. do not thaw them before use-getts messy.

Now the ultimate bananas.

Just peel them and freeze them on parchment paper- and then divide-and conquer-ziplock them cut to 3 or 4 parts (each banana) so you can use them in shakes, nice creams, whatnot. but please beware- do not thaw them before use and you can eat them frozen as a snack- but I do hope you can finish it off before it thaws-it is not a pretty sight. believe moi.

Here is a link to my previous post on them bananas.

they’re as cold as ice

Also, great freezer-friendly fruits are grapes, nectarines, pears, peaches, I am sure many more. if you are not a fan of sugar you do not always have to make jam when the fruit is too ripe. just keep cool and stick it in the freezer.

enjoy- the cooliflower.
