Tasty Tips

If you’re like me, you can never get enough tips on how to make food last longer. The excellent Love Food, Hate Waste (LFHW) site has a whole bunch of helpful hints, from food prep to storage.

I make periodic visits to LFHW, as the British site constantly receives user-submitted tips. My favorites are the ones that provide ideas for using food that’s a bit old. For example, briefly wetting a day-old loaf of bread before popping it in the oven to make it taste fresh. (That’s better than some other uses for day-old bread.)

While not everyone has the time or inclination to turn subprime food into something more appealing than subprime mortgages, we can all benefit from the site’s tips on how best to store food. Check the “Keep Your Cool” tab for fridge storage suggestions.

As a reminder, you can peruse reader advice in my site’s Tips tab. And don’t be bashful–leave your own ideas there, too!
