If youve made a bit too much
food, dont throw it away. Most foods will keep for up to 4
days in the fridge (not fish or seafood though!) and can be used
Planning for leftovers
Its quite good to sometimes made double
a recipe with leftovers in mind. If you make something
which is suitable for freezing, it is even better, as you can have
it later in the month.
Keep any leftover food in a sealed
container in the fridge or in a dish covered with clingfilm. Keep
away from raw meats.
Even if you only have a small amount
of food left, think about how you could use it creatively in a snack,
or as part of another meal. Pieces of chicken could be used to make
Coronation Chicken for use in sandwiches, with rice, or in a jacket
potato. Stir-fry is another option. If youre unsure - try
entering your ingredients into the Search box above and see if theres
anything you like.
Make sure you heat leftovers through
until they are piping hot whether using a microwave or conventional
oven. Dont re-heat fish, and dont re-heat anything more
