At Respect Food, we are obsessed with making sure great produce makes it onto our plates Fresh fruit is vital for a balanced, healthy diet, but we can all be guilty of letting ours get way too ripe. It has never been more important to make to most of our natural resources, but luckily there are many ways you can dramatically reduce the amount of fruit and veg you waste at home.
Apples are one of the world’s most popular fruits, but also one of the most commonly wasted. In the UK alone, a staggering 4.4 million apples are thrown out every day. Most of us have been guilty of buying a few too many Brauburns, Pink Lady’s or Granny Smiths, only to have them go soft before we’ve gotten around to tucking in. The good news is underripe, soft, even bruised apples are perfect for cooking with. Read on for some apple-aling inspiration, or check out some of our tips and tricks on using up other fruits.
