A lit­tle pars­ley look-alike

These com­mon leftovers of­ten get tossed into the com­post bin, but there are plenty of use­ful and de­li­cious things you can do with them in­stead.

Com­post­ing kitchen scraps is some­thing many Ki­wis do, and on lifestyle blocks there’s also the op­tion of feed­ing some scraps to our an­i­mals.

But there are also a lot of de­li­cious things you can make or do with some of these ‘scraps’ in the kitchen that you might not have con­sid­ered. Here are just three waste prod­ucts from your kitchen that have a mul­ti­tude of other uses.


Add peel to your veg­etable stock. Boil the potato peels with all the other veg­etable skins that you may oth­er­wise throw away, in­clud­ing onion skins, car­rot peels, leek ends, etc. Also save fresh herb stems for this, in­clud­ing pars­ley stalks, rose­mary stems, co­rian­der root, etc.

If I don’t have time to make ei­ther of these, then my potato peels aren’t wasted as they are the favourite food of my two kunekunes who will come to the back door to beg for them!
