Making Right Food Gone Wrong | Frugal Tips
All too often I find opened packages of food that have been left unattended or improperly sealed for some time. It is never a happy thing for a frugal mom to find things that she worked so hard to save money on in such a state of abandonment! Frugal moms – I am happy to tell you there is still hope! Here are a few random tips on how to make right any food that has gone wrong.
- Hard Foods Gone Soft (aka stale food)
(Cereal, Hard Cookies, Crackers)
Bake for no longer than 5 minutes and remove from the oven and let cool. Reseal in packaging and they are once again edible!
- Soft Foods Gone Hard
(Cookies, brown sugar, etc.)
Throw a slice of bread inside of the container/package and seal up overnight. Remove in the morning and voila! You have newly restored soft food.
- Brown Bananas
Don’t throw them away in frustration – freeze them and make them into banana bread later or use for fruit smoothies!
May your kitchen be restored to a state of freshness after following these simple steps!
