A new month, a new challenge with 'OSOF Sustainable Me | Our Seas Our Future'. Each month this year we will be challenged to test out an environmentally friendly behaviour that in some way impacts ocean health. It gives us the challenge to try something new for the month and decide if we want to adopt it more in our lives.
This month's challenge takes place in our kitchens, to preserve some fresh, local produce for the depths of winter. What a great idea! Not only are you saving on packaging you're ensuring there's no wastage. And what a great way to reuse your Sweetree honey jars!
Here's What They Suggest:
Beginner: Just freeze something. This is the easiest way to preserve fresh foods. Make a basic freezer jam, or simply slice up some plums and pears and stash them away for a winter’s morning.
Intermediate: Get preserving! Try out some pickles or jam through the links provided above and below. Use your Sweetree honey jars!
Advanced: Go crazy in the kitchen with jams, chutneys, sauces, kimchi and soups. How much can you preserve?
This challenge works in perfectly with Sweetree's 'Bee Sweet and Reuse' photo competition! Email us or share a photo on our Facebook page or Instagram page of glass jars (not just Sweetree jars) being used creatively and you could be in to win! Show us your storage ideas, preserves, anything and be in to win a spot prize of plastic free goodies!
