As I hold on to my mother’s philosophy of root-to-stem cooking.
Little hacks come handy, and so I have decided to share these tips I have learned from my parents with you all.
Freezer them: We often end up putting all the peels and the heads of the veggies we used in the trash. On the contrary, I saw my grandma storing leftovers and the waste of vegetables in the freezer to make vegetable stock.
Fruits for Fertilizer: What do you usually do when you finish eating a banana, apple, an orange or a pomegranate?? Trash them? Well, now you can store them in a zip lock bag with some water a few days and then use the water a plant fertilizer.
Onion and garlic peels: What?!! How can one use onion and garlic peels?
Well, the outer skin of onion and garlic contains high antioxidant and a great source of vitamin A, C and E.
Tips to use onion and garlic skin
Pop in some onion skins in the rice cooker to add nutrients to rice.
Heat the onion skin or a few layers of onion with hair oil to stop hair fall naturally.
Use onion and garlic-infused water on the skin to avoid skin allergies and acne.
Can’t use them now? Alrighty! Store them in a zip lock or plastic bag or a container for later in the freezer.
Aai, Baba and Aaji.
