Festive food waste: What to do with your leftovers?

When it’s too late to reheat or rehash, how can you make recycling easier?

From the Christmas food leftovers making your dining room table groan to the small mountain of burnt burgers and sausages remaining after a summer BBQ, we all face a common problem: what to do with our food waste?

The problem of what to do with your leftovers is a curiously modern issue. From the earliest times throwing out perfectly good food would have been considered not only foolish but positively immoral too. Thankfully, with 21st century thinking again embracing the idea of recycling being frugal with your food waste is back in vogue.

Turning the usual Christmas food leftovers into family meals for the rest of the holiday season is nothing new. Turkey curry, turkey sandwiches and turkey salad are a familiar sight on family meal tables in the festive season or following Thanksgiving in America. But what to do when your food waste is well past it’s best?
