Revive Your Produce

Tired of throwing out produce when it’s gone bad? We’ve got 10 tips and tricks to help revive your fruits and vegetables and be sure to give them new life.

  1. Turn those nearly spoiled lemons into lemonade. As you notice your lemons beginning to over ripen, the best thing to do is squeeze them into a refreshing lemonade. Bring that citrus flavor back to life!
  2. If your carrots are nearing the end of their shelf life, make them into carrot chips! Slice the carrots as thin as you can. Line a baking pan with some aluminum foil or parchment paper and add your carrot slices. Throw on your favorite spices, and cook them to your desired crunch level.
  3. Forget to use all of your root vegetables? Throw them together for a delicious veggie filled roast. Take your carrots, beets, turnips and more and roast them to eat with any dish throughout the week. An easy and quick way to ensure you get the most of your veggies.
  4. Asparagus going brown? Simply bake it! We promise with a little time and love it will be back to good and full of nutritious flavor.
  5. Brown bananas? Freeze them and make some banana bread later! Avoid spending more money and buying a loaf when you have bruised bananas that will taste just as sweet as the fresh ones.
  6. Are your berries close to expiring? Make the most of them by preparing your own homemade ice cream. Mix them with yogurt and have yourself a sweet treat much healthier than your other options.
  7. Got a bad apple? Don’t throw it away! Cut out the obvious bruised pieces and clean the remainders well. Then throw them into an American classic, the favorite apple pie. You’ve got your pie… and can eat it too!
  8. Green beans make for a great snack. When you notice they are starting to go bad, clean and cut them down to fit in a jar. Add in salt to taste and some water before leaving them in the fridge for a week or so. You’ve got yourself a good deed and a healthy snack!
  9. Turn your cucumbers into pickles! Pull together your nearly spoiled cucumbers and add them into some jars. Make a mixture of salt and water and add it in. Keep an eye on them, and once you notice the salt and sugar have dissolved, add water and vinegar in even parts. Wait 24 hours minimum before enjoying your homemade pickles!
  10. Don’t let your green and nutrient filled vegetables go to waste! Make sure those green leafy vegetables go to use by adding them to your smoothie mixture. Easy, and delicious!

Thanksgiving Leftover Stuffing and Turkey Muffins

Muffin’ compares to this Thanksgiving leftover recipe! Stuff your muffin tins and stomachs full with this stuffing and turkey mixture to keep the Thanksgiving spirit alive. It’s a simple and easy way to make the most of your leftovers, one delicious muffin at a time.

Ingredients

3 cups precooked stuffing

1 cup chopped turkey, ham, or mixture of both

6 large eggs

2 tbsp milk or cream

¼ tsp salt

Freshly cracked pepper

Directions

Preheat your oven to 375°.

Add the stuffing and turkey and/or ham into a bowl and stir lightly, being sure to not break up the stuffing too much.

Coat your muffin tin heavily with butter or a non-stick spray as the mixture will stick if not coated liberally. Divide your mixture into the tins loosely to leave room for the egg mixture.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Place the egg mixture into the muffin tins. Don’t overfill as the mixtures will expand while cooking.

Bake your muffins for 25-30 min or until lightly crisp and golden on the top.

Let muffins cool. Loosen the edges with a knife and remove the muffins.

Serve, and enjoy!
