Waste not, want not...

eamcd | Apr 27, 2008 04:07 PM

In light of the great threads on Recession recipes, I'm hoping for some other suggestions. We all know about obvious creative culinary uses for leftovers or things past their prime. I'm thinking of bread pudding, rice pudding, croutons, bread crumbs, applesauce from trimmed bruised apples, bones/scraps for stock, etc. These are ways to give food items a second life.

I'm not talking about using spoiled food, just looking for some 'Hound ideas or experience with how to keep the budget tight and avoid food waste. I''d love to hear your suggestions!
