Waste Not

Like last week there were Granny Smith apples left over on Friday so I brought 3 home and this time I made an apple pie.

I stewed the apples with a few whole cloves and used the sweet pastry recipe which is here.

Pie base with apple added

Completed and brushed with milk – ready to go in the oven

Ready to serve

I also squeezed an assortment of less than perfect citrus – lemons, oranges, mandarins and grapefruit.  I added some sugar and made up a drink using 1/3 juice and 2/3 soda water.  It was nice and refreshing.

Both the drink and apple pie used ingredients that would otherwise have been watsed.

What have you cooked or made so that ingredients do not get wasted?
