If growing your own fruit and vegetables has taught me anything apart from how to grow our own food; it is to waste as little food as possible. Even the shop bought food we buy is used up before the sell by date, and if we do not want to eat it that day it is cooked up as a useful meal to store in the freezer.
I prefer to eat casseroles and cooked meals fresh from the kitchen to the table so the type of things I do with vegetables that need using up is mostly soup making. When making soup to store in the freezer, I cook up the vegetables in less liquid than you would normally use for soup making and then I store it in a sort of puree thickness and add more liquid when I get it out of the freezer to cook up. It cooks faster that way and uses up less storage space. Today' s soup cooking session was parsnip.

Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
