Uses For Overripe Fruit

I used to get frustrated when I threw away a piece of fruit because it got overripe. Now I just take the fruit when it’s heading to the edge and make something else with it.

Overripe bananas can be peeled, wrapped in foil and frozen. Eat them right from the foil as a banana popsicle or use them to whip up a batch of banana bread or a smoothie.

Frozen grapes can go straight from the freezer into your mouth. Wash, let dry on a paper towel, and then freeze. Everyone loves this summer treat.

Peaches, plums and berries go straight into Jell-O for a tasty dessert treat or snack.

Any fruit can be frozen for smoothies, ice cream, granitas or sorbet or you could get really ambitious and make jams and jellies.

Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
