What meals you make from "soon to expire" produce?

Sometimes I buy soon to expire produce. It helps me save on my vegetable & fruits. Some things I have in mind for them is soups, banana bread, jams and smoothies. Is there any else you make with "soon to expire produce"?

  • Pies and cakes. You can always freeze it too.

  • Our stores sell soon to expire fruit but dont tell ya!
    Do a stir fry with the veggies always yummy! Soup is a good idea, I freeze my chick & rice soup (celery does not freeze well). I think you pretty much have your bases covered & with what the PP has said sounds like all the options to me!

  • Casseroles to get rid of the last bit of milk, cheese and veggies. Smoothies for fruit. French toast for bread.

  • I won't buy marked-down produce except bananas if I really need to bake something - so I only buy them maybe once a year, or less. It's not worth it IMO to buy anything else marked down.

  • For fruits you can put them in a large glass container with a lid and add sugar to them and wait for a few weeks and guess what?Alcohol!!Yep they ferment and alot of ladies back in the day had some of this around all the time .gets a little syrupy but mmmmm keeps a cook happy with a very small glass a day!Remember very small its potent stuff.Remember to stir it daily.
