Christmas is a time when we often spend more on food, and as family budgets get a little stretched it’s even more important to get the most out of our food. 

For peelings and left-overs that can’t be reused take a look at the Bokashi Bucket system

Every time you have scraps to throw, be it meat fish or vegetable, just open the lid and drop them in the Bokashi Bucket along with a ‘sprinkling’ of the Bokashi Bran and re-seal the lid.

When the bucket is full, leave for two weeks with the lid sealed and then either dig the resultant Bokashi into the garden or add to your compost heap. As the Bokashi is ‘composting’ in the Bokashi bucket, a nutient rich liquor is produced which is collected by using the tap on the bucket every couple of days. Dilute the liquor with water at 1:100 and use as plant feed throughout the home and garden.

To make the most of food that can still be eaten take a look at Love Food Hate Waste.  They shares top tips to help you cut food waste, save some money, and make the cook’s life a little easier.

After the over-indulgence that often happens over Christmas, it’s good to move into the new year with thoughts of recycling and cutting down on our waste production.  

With the Bokashi Bucket, every time you have scraps to throw, be it meat, fish or vegetable, just open the lid and drop them in the Bokashi Bucket along with a ‘sprinkling’ of the Bokashi Bran and re-seal the lid.  …And by using the Effective Micro-organisms in the bran there will be no smells to worry about!

When the bucket is full, leave for two weeks with the lid sealed and then either dig the resultant Bokashi into the garden or add to your compost heap. As the Bokashi is ‘composting’ in the Bokashi bucket, a nutrient rich liquor is produced and this can be collected every couple of days using the tap on the bucket.  Dilute the liquor with water at 1:100 and use as plant feed throughout the home and garden.

We recommend the purchase of two Bokashi buckets, so that when one is full and ‘composting’, you have a spare to start filling – there is a considerable saving if you purchase two buckets at the same time.
