6 Tips for Eliminating Food Waste at Home
Simple strategies for making sure nothing goes to waste.
Make Friends with Your Freezer
Don't be afraid to put the deep chill on cheeses (hard grating cheeses like cheddar thaw best), milk (to bake with), egg whites, tomato-based products (like homemade pasta sauce), broths, wine (for future cooking, not drinking), herbs, and hardy greens like kale (blanching first helps preserve quality). And, of course, leftovers. Note: If you load up on produce at the grocery store or farmers' market, freezing the surplus immediately is the best way to preserve nutrients.
