Don’t Bin, Tuck In: 5 Tips To Make Food Last Longer

We’ve all been there. A fridge full of food that’s seen better days. A cupboard overflowing with a half-eaten loaf of bread, soft biscuits and the dregs of jars well past their sell-by date.

‘Once opened, consume within 3 days’: what if we don’t want to? What if we forget?

We’ve felt the inevitable guilt after finally chucking it in the bin. It feels wasteful. You feel short-changed. But what else is there to do?

A whiff of a rotten egg? Bin. Limp lettuce leaves? Bin. Rock hard bread? Even the ducks won’t have it now.

But stay your hand before pouring whiffy milk down the sink - it’s time to get shelf-life savvy. Here’s how you can make groceries go that extra mile…

Milk


Milk rapidly reaching its expiry date before you’ve barely drunk a drop? Add a pinch of salt to extend freshness for up to a week.

Bread


Once a tasty loaf, now: a door stopper; rub an ice cube over the surface before baking for 10 minutes to revive stale bread.

Eggs


An oldie but a goodie: move eggs from the cupboard to the fridge and extend their life for up to 4 weeks. Eggscellent.

Cheese


Dry and flaky cheese? Spread a thin layer of butter along the cut side and wrap in wax paper to keep soft and scrumptious.

Lettuce


If you find your life blighted by limp lettuce, wrap in a paper towel to absorb water and keep it crunchy.
