Winner – Leftover UnCooked Food
Judge Zoe from Eco Thrifty Living said:-
I like these homemade breadsticks. I often make melba toast but hadn’t thought of the breadsticks idea. My kids will love them!
Bridget of Shillingford Organics said:-
I love the simplicity of this and it’s many-fold purpose, great as rusks and for dips, what a great idea. Keeping things simply is the key. There always seems to be a surplus of bread in any household and I am all for the ‘old’ ways. Bread and Butter pudding is also one carried through the generations and is made even better with the use of stale bread. Any crumbs for the birds are also useful, especially in the leaner times.
Winner – Leftover Cooked Food
Rae from My Zero Waste says:-
I love this idea from Peggy; it sounds like real comfort food and so versatile too! I can just imagine tucking into these delicious savoury cakes seasoned with a bit of curry powder on an autumn evening or adding fresh mint and serving them cold the next day with salad for a summer picnic. I think kids would love them if you made them into rounds the size of a £2 coin and they’re a great way of hiding veg!
