Preserving Can Cut Food Bills

Fruit and vegetables are eating into our food bills.

Health experts have been encouraging families to eat their five a day for years, but food bills don’t make this an easy task. In an attempt to live a healthy lifestyle most families in the UK spend half their annual food bill on fruit and veg alone.

Fresh fruit and vegetables are often more expensive to buy than their tinned and frozen alternative, and tend to go bad within a couple of days, adding to household food waste.

For families, this waste of money is not a risk they’re willing to take. With children particularly picky when it comes to food, there must be a solution to eating healthy and cutting cost.

Traditional methods of food preservation allow families to preserve fresh food and make delicious jams, pickles or chutneys. This can considerably reduce household food waste and help families maintain a healthier lifestyle while keeping an eye on their food bills. By investing in reusable airtight glass jars, such as Kilner jars, families can save fresh produce to enjoy at a later date.

Food doesn’t have to be bought at the supermarket. Many people spend time picking hedgerow fruit from country lanes such as blackberries. This can be a fun family activity and be very rewarding.

When it comes to food, eat healthy and preserve.

Grab your spatulas, mixing bowls and Kilner jars and get ready for this years series of The Great British Bake Off.

Now in its fifth series, The Great British Bake Off will showcase 12 talented, amateur bakers as they compete on BBC One.

Queen of cakes, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood will be keeping an eye on the bakers as the kitchen heats up and their baking skills are put to the test.

This year we will see the youngest ever contestant on the show, Martha who is only 17 years old, balance baking in the white tent with her A level coursework. Martha told the BBC “I may be in school but my head is always in the kitchen!”

The series starts on Wednesday the 6th of August on BBC One.
