In our new series Use It Up, we talk about how to make best use of ingredients that we tend to find lingering (maybe even languishing) in our fridges. First up, summer produce: It’s that time of year when we buy up the last of summer produce in an exuberant frenzy — without a plan. So now what with all that zucchini and basil?
Using Up Summer’s Produce Bounty
“Use it up” is one of our favorite ways to help with meal planning, avoid food waste, and clear out the fridge. We cover everything from easy preserving to simple dinner ideas so you can finish up that zucchini before pumpkin and apples hit the market hard.
