Old bread

Throwing too much of it away



Quote:
But despite its ease and enduring appeal, 32% of bread purchased by UK households is dumped when it could be eaten, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) figures show.

to research by anti-food waste organisation Wrap, 680,000 tonnes of "avoidable" bakery waste is disposed of each year at a cost of 1.1bn, about 80% of it from packs that have been opened but not finished.

"Freegan" Mark Boyle sees plenty of bread in rubbish bins when looking for free food, and thinks people have lost touch with the bread-making process.

You can always cut the moldy bits off.

Turn it into Bread and Butter pudding!


August - 16-3-2012 at 15:57

I always give it to the birds.

Ruddy hell, he's not a Jehovah's witness, is he ? shocked_yellow

I was thinking of him converting Americans into bread pudding fans


giron - 17-3-2012 at 13:25

I didn't know Jehovah's witnesses did that, I thought they just came banging on your door on a Sunday morning trying to convert you to their ludicrous religious beliefs. confused2

A house ?
You're lucky to have a house, some folks live in cardboard boxes and have to survive all week on a stale crust of bread and a cup of water ! waggyfinger

It's a hard life being an out of work banker.

My dear wife is so averse to mold that she wants to throw the whole loaf out at the first spot of it.:(


John_Little - 12-4-2012 at 07:50

You know it contains penicillin, don't you? And some fungi contain ergot for a free trip!
