Using Over-Ripe Veggies And Fruits

This Sparked Me!

Sometimes we keep fruits and veggies past their prime. Instead of tossing them, remove any rotted pieces, bag the rest, and freeze them. When you want to add veggies or fruits to cooked dishes, e.g., soup, pasta sauce, add these instead of purchased frozen foods. I keep fruits for use in jello.

    I freeze bananas to make banana bread for my son when he wants a treat. :)

    They're also great for smoothies (at least the fruit)!
