Here’s how to save it:
- Freeze it and use individual slices straight from the freezer.
- If it feels a bit stale, whizz it into breadcrumbs and store in the freezer.
- Make something delicious: bread pudding, french toast, croutons, dumplings. Check out some of our recipes here.
How to make it last longer:
- Store with damp paper towel in an airtight container in the fridge.
- Soak wilted greens in ice for 5 minutes to perk them up.
- Try Ronni’s Rescued Lettuce Soup… it’s nutritious and delicious!
How to store and save:
- Store away from direct sunlight in a cool, dry, dark place.
- Don’t wash potatoes until ready to use.
- If bruised just cut away the outer layer and remove any damaged areas.
- Don’t bin the skin! This is the most nutritious part and you’ll save time if you don’t have to peel it!
- Peel and chop into segments, pop in a bag and store in freezer – great for smoothies, in porridge, banana bread and muffins.
- Eat them! They still taste great. Just cut away any bruised parts and enjoy.
Check the dates:
- If near the USE-BY date and you’re not going to eat it in time, freeze it!
- Meat will store safely in the freezer for a good six months.
