Reuse: Christmas leftovers you do want (but at a later time):
1. 27th or 28th lunches or dinner?
2. Those leftover grapes from your cheese board can be frozen with water in an ice cube tray to create a fancy addition to your drinks.
3. Freeze and nut roasts or met-free alternatives for up to three months.
4. Freeze Stilton cheese and use in cooking (broccoli & stilton soup) or thaw for your cheese board.
5. Blend cooked turkey in a food processor to make turkey mince. Freeze and use at a later date.
6. Whip any leftover cream and freeze.
7. Refrigerate Christmas pudding for up to three months.
8. Slice Christmas cake (or any cake) and freeze it with greaseproof paper between each piece so you don't have to defrost an entire cake.
9. Freeze cooked turkey and ham and thaw in the fridge to use in casseroles, curries, pies and sandwiches.
Recycle: Christmas leftovers you don’t want:
1. If your council has a food waste collection scheme, make the most of it. They accept almost all food types and use it to make compost.
2. DIY? If you have a compost bin or heap make the absolute most of it! Once your leftovers have turned to soil, use it to feed your garden plants.
3. If you don’t have a large garden other options are a wormery, which you put fruit and veg peelings in and fill with worms. They break the waste down to be used as soil.
