Eat Peasant quit plastic ode to self
These mason jars have been mine for 30 years and represent an attachment to all things peasant. Vintage jars continue to work for tomatoes and everything else we put up. A replacement lid is all. Lunches, left-overs and freezer foods all go into jars with no need for plastic. I remind myself be vigilant about waste.
In the kitchen at Le Crocodile, chef Michel Jacob lives this kitchen virtue obtaining the best food control in the industry and the experience remains an excellent example of waste management.
I tell to my ear, less is more. Buy in bulk, share with family, friends and neighbors to reduce waste. Stores are still using foam trays on organic meat and poultry and wrapping it in plastic. The single portion is wasteful!
In a perfect world we make yogurt, bread and bakery products, noodles, pasta etc and stay away from the middle isles of the supermarket, avoiding packaging.
I am on the warpath to end waste and to embrace my peasant roots.
Composting, edible garden instead of lawn. Seedy Saturdays are coming up! Fortunate to have a freezer.
Farmers markets are wonderful in this regard. Avoiding packaging.
Grass fed and finished beef comes to us in butcher wrap, in sensible portions as does lamb and pork. Keeping a ready supply of homemade meals is sure to cut down on plastic!
The way of the peasant is to make what we consume.
