Did you know that apples and potatoes are two of the UK’s top 3 wasted foods?
Along with using these tasty ingredients in this soup recipe, here’s some tips to help prevent them from going to waste:
Potatoes: Did you know that you can still eat potatoes when they have sprouted? Simply remove the shoots, including the eyes, and then they can be prepped for cooking.
Safety first: Potatoes that are soft to the touch, wrinkled or mouldy are not safe to eat. Also, if your spuds are looking a little green this is due to too much light exposure. The green portions can be toxic, so be sure to trim these sections off before eating.
Apples: As one of the most plentiful foods grown in the UK, apples are a staple of the fruit bowls. But when cravings for this healthy snack subside, what other uses can they be put to? As it happens, quite a few. The most well known recipes are sweet, such as apple crumble, cakes and pies, but apples can also be added to savoury dishes.
