Food waste is putting a huge strain on our planet. It might not seem like the most obvious contributor but food waste which is unsustainably disposed creates gases such as methane which, on the scale we are currently wasting, is a significant factor in climate change. According to UK charity WRAP ‘not wasting good food and drink would have the same positive environmental impact as taking 1 in 4 cars off UK roads.’ It’s also just plain unnecessary in a lot of circumstances.
By using up leftovers, old tired veg and things that you might not ordinarily consider making part of your meal, we hope that we can share some useful ideas and encourage some creative frugality in the kitchen.
Sourdough is delicious and has become a very popular lockdown pastime for many people. If you are one of those people (and if you aren’t we’re sure you know someone who is) then you will know that you regularly have to discard some of your starter when feeding it. When we first tried making sourdough years ago, we were guilty of just throwing it straight in the bin but here’s some great news fellow bakers...you can cook with this too!
There are many delicious things you can make with your discard but these crackers are super quick and easy to make so are a great place to start.
