Use It or Bin It Exercise

June 3rd, 2013 at 12:54 am

I am trying to use up some of the items that I have in my pantry that I have bought over the years.
Sago and tapioca are some of these items that I have to use up they are way past their use by dates by a number of years.

Its use it or bin it exercise. I am not putting on weight when eating this recipe so that is why I still have them in the pantry as other recipes I used cause a weight gain in the past.

Lemon Sago
Serves 4
2oz sago
1 1/2 cups water
Soak for 2 hours
Add pinch salt and boil.
Add the rind of half lemon and juice of whole lemon
Then add 1 tablespoon golden syrup and 1 tablespoon brown sugar (white sugar will do if you have no brown sugar).
Dissolve and mix this in the boiling sago mixture and pour mixture into basin to set.
I eat this cold when set with poached whole pears or stewed apples.

Do you have items in your pantry or kitchen cupboard that needs to use up?

Four days of no spending here.

    I was just thinking I needed to start using things in my pantry...thanks for the poke in the right direction. And English Castle...too bad we can't share!

    When an item was in the pantry 10 years ago you can't give it away to anyone but eat it yourself or bin it.
    Yes it a pity that we aren't share them out but we find ways of using our hidden pantry stores together.
