There’s a bit of a conundrum taking place in the kitchen at zero waste towers.
Instead of buying mayonnaise in a glass jar (easy to recycle) I was lured by promises of saving money rather than saving the environment and bought a huge plastic squeezy bottle of our nation’s favourite brand when it was on half price offer.
The thing is, I’m beginning to wonder if it was a good deal after all.
Because nothing is a good deal if you have to throw some of it away:
No amount of keeping the bottle upright, shaking it viciously or applying Uri Geller practise to the laws of gravity is helping right now.
Take a look at this:
It’s the second bottle we’ve had where the mayonnaise stays at the top of the bottle!
It won’t be sweet talked, cajoled or even bullied into submission.
When I was a few decades younger than now and we reached the end of a ketchup or salad cream bottle my Grandmother would say “put a drop of vinegar in it my love”, add a few drops, shake and voila – enough condiment to feed an army on.
But times must have changed, because even vinegar isn’t working its charm.
It’s not just around the edges either; it really is stuck right up there (makes me wonder what it does to one’s arteries and intestines!)
Have you ever come across gravity-defying mayonnaise? I’d love to know how you dealt with it!
