Give food a second chance this Christmas
With festive entertaining, most of us have extra food left over that we just didn't use in time. Over the Christmas period we throw out an estimated 80% more food than usual - wasting nearly £50 per household! Most of this waste is avoidable.
Making the most of your fridge and freezer can help extend the life of your food.
* We keep our freshest (and often most expensive) food in the fridge, so keep tabs on their use-by dates. The freezer may be the best place for food you won't get round to eating in time.
* Festive foods like Christmas cheese, and parties foods like sausage rolls can be frozen and used in packed lunches when you go back to work. Remember not to refreeze food.
Being creative with your leftovers will save it from going to waste and will often create a tasty, nutritionous meal. Cranberry sauce brownies are just one example there are many more at www.norfolk.gov.uk/secondchance.
Cranberry Sauce Brownies
This chocolate brownie recipe doubles or triples well and they freeze brilliantly. Add other leftover festive ingredients such as nuts or dried fruits.
100g unsalted butter
50g plain chocolate
150g caster sugar
4 tablespoons cranberry sauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) mark 4.
2. Melt the butter and chocolate in a heavy pan over a low heat, stirring frequently until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
3. Beat the sugar, with the eggs and cranberry sauce in a bowl and pour in the chocolate mixture with the vanilla extract, flour and salt.
4. Pour into a 21cm square tin and bake for 15-20 minutes. If you put in a toothpick it should come out wet.
