At Respect Food, we all about finding tips and tricks to help the fight against food waste. There are so many things you can do at home, from shopping little and often, to learning the correct way to store fresh produce, to teaching your kids where their food comes from. As protecting our planet becomes ever more urgent, cutting-edge technological innovations are being developed to fight this battle on a larger scale: electron beams can now sanitise crops, while blockchain technology is being used to help consumers track the origins of supermarket turkeys!
When it comes to stopping everyday food waste, there are some basic tools and appliances every eco-savvy chef should have in their arsenal and a handful of exciting new innovations that make getting the most out of your groceries easy as pie.
If you can’t eat all your fruit or veg when it’s fresh, a handy thing to have is a dehydrator! Grundig’s new Fast and Healthy oven technology has this function and so many more. It quickly vaporises the liquid in fresh food so it can be stored for much longer. Once you realise how many delicious snacks you can make from a dehydrator, it will be hard to stop! Try making your own beef jerky, healthy fruit leather, or preserving beautiful seasonal wild mushrooms. You could also try making Kale crisps for a crunchy, satisfying and healthy snack!
