That’s not food waste…
It was bought about after finding a black banana in the fruit bowl and turning it into a pretty amazing dessert.
This week I’ve been at it again with a rather sad looking pineapple I found in a box.
I admit I fell for the offer – the Co-Op were selling pineapples for 50p each, so how could I resist buying
After a couple of fruit salads, a fruit crumble and some ice cream our love of pineapple was wearing a bit thin, so the last one was left sulking in the corner of my weekly fruit and veg box.
Temperatures hotted up, fruit flies increased and I looked in one day to find this staring back at me:
I mean, no wonder it was hot, the poor thing was wearing a fur jacket in temperatures of 25+:
But you know, I thought back to that lonely black banana and wondered if the pineapple might be ok inside; after all it has a pretty tough skin.
So I cut the skin off and here’s what I found:
Perfect! And still glistening with juice. So much so I shoved it mercilessly head first into the juicer with a couple of wrinkly oranges and we ended up with this for breakfast:
It was sweet, tangy, refreshing and felt like it was still bursting with vitamin C despite seeing better days on the outside…
I think the moral of the story must be that we might be wrinkly and a bit mouldy on the outside, but we can still be juicy inside
Tell me; what food have you saved from the bin this week?
