Food Waste Elimination Tip #5: Purge the Pantry!

Chef Christopher Gigiel

Use it so that you don’t lose it!

While you’re getting into that habit of planning meals and menus and organizing your kitchen, be sure to plan one day a week that uses what you have on hand. No matter how well you plan there are always leftovers, and left over groceries that need to be used. I do this regularly in the Culinary Center at NCBA. I often have extra produce on hand and get creative with how I can use it instead of buying more. I look at my canned goods and dry storage and see what I have on hand already and plan something that utilizes those things with a minimum of additional purchases required. And, of course, if you have several kinds of leftovers in the fridge and haven’t frozen them it’s always great for the family to be able to “make what they want” for dinner, and if there’s still some left, freeze it.

  1. Today we went to a fund raiser for a boy scout to raise money for his Eagle scout project. The meat was wild boar and the cook knew what he was doing. It was reall good, I had to have two sandwich with Cole slaw on them. You know wild pig is plentiful here in Florida the cook owns a ranch in Arcadia and the pigs are tearing up his pastures, this was a good way to get rid of some of them and help a young man too.
