More ways to avoid waste

By Julie Norman

I made some bread last week using my awesome bread maker that I got for Christmas from my sister.  This was a different recipe from my normal "Hearty Nut Bread." It was supposed to be a "French" bread but what it turned out to be was super crumbly.  The last bit wasn't even suitable for toast, but instead of tossing it I decided to make bread crumbs with it.

Super crumbly leftover French bread

I tore it into pieces and put it in the food processor then spread it on my toaster oven tray and toasted it.

Then I just poured these into a zip-top bag and labeled them.  Now they're ready to be used for meatloaf, as a coating for something...as a crunchy pasta topping...whatever!  The point is, I didn't waste it.

I also made applesauce this weekend with some apples that I froze last fall.  I thawed them, added them to a pan with a little cinnamon, 1 tsp of sugar and some organic apple juice.  I let them cook down for about 10 minutes and then ran them through the food processor.  This applesauce has been particularly great mixed in with oatmeal.  You could easily do the same thing with fresh apples that are about to go bad.  Find a purpose for those items!  Don't waste!
