Christmas leftovers

It's the big day, you've shopped, peeled, chopped and roasted - Christmas dinner has so many components, it's easy to misjudge and accidentally make too much.

Instead of bunging leftovers in your compost, make your festive food go further. Look at it as an opportunity for a more relaxed Boxing Day - all the prep's already done.

Alternatively, consider preserving leftover vegetables and fruits - make jams or chutneys, or turn them into freezable soups or stews. Everyone likes to feel prepared as we go into the new year, and having a few easy meals ready to go can certainly help.

On the topic of freezing foods - did you know you can freeze cheese? Neither did we!

Always make sure to check if you can freeze, preserve, or incorporate an ingredient into a tasty meal before letting it go bad.

We've got great leftover ideas:
