An Old-fashioned “Waste Not, Want Not” Recipe and Resource Book by Jes at Strangers & Pilgrims on Earth
I have admired Jes and her wonderful herb posts for a while now. She really has her herbal pantry put together nicely and I strive to be as organized as she is.
Recently I found that she has combined all of her creative herbal ideas into an e-book which is chock full of ideas to use food scraps that you already have available after preserving and cooking projects.
You’ll learn how to create a master list of ingredients using leftover items that most people would compost or throw away. Now you have a use for all those apple peels, citrus rinds, and many other fruits, spices, and herbs that are often wasted.
Begin by making master infusions with these products and once they are finished, you’ll be able to create over 100 useful items for these areas:
- Bath & Body
- Cleaning Closet
- Embellishing the Home
- Kitchen Table
- Medicine Cabinet
- and several other ideas
Even if you have not prepared the master infusions there are still many recipes that can be made in a snap.
It makes me want to go buy another box of oranges!
Fortunately, I have almost all of the items on hand to make any of these recipes.
Look no further! Here’s my new e-book that will show you how to purchase and store over 50 fruits and vegetables. Use them in your food scrap projects! Get it for free by subscribing.
Spicy Seasoning Blend Food Scrap Project
The recipes in this book are easy to follow. You are sure to find something that will be perfect for your home or for gift giving. I decided to make Spicy Seasoning Blend for my first project.
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or granules
- 1 teaspoon dried lemon zest (that’s your leftover ingredient!)
Mix the ingredients together and store in an airtight container. It has a shelf life of 3 to 6 months before it begins to lose its intense flavor. Use this seasoning whenever you need a bit of spice on potatoes or vegetables.
Will you like this book?
Yes, if you are interested in using those often overlooked items in fruit scrap projects.
Yes, if you love to can fruit or make jam. You are going to have the items readily available anyway. Why not put the excess to use? It’s like getting free cleaning supplies, bath items, and gifts!
No, if you don’t like to save money or can’t be bothered by making things yourself. (I’m sure that’s not you…)
