With all the pears I was peeling, I didn’t want to toss the peelings and cores. Not so long ago, the chickens would have gotten the scraps but . . no chickens and I just couldn’t throw all those good scraps out.
In MO, I didn’t have a container big enough so I weighed it all out in my head:
- If I just throw out the peelings, would I be sorry?
- If I buy a large container that I don’t really need, would I be sorry?
I decided buying a container was the best option. I would be sorry to throw out that much good pear leftovers that will make great pear vinegar.
When I peeled apples for the ebelskivers, I put those scraps in there too and it kinda changed the color at the top. I looked at it last night and wondered why it was darker at the top and then remembered the apple skins went in there.
So, it sits! I will leave it hear while I’m gone back to Texas and it should be just fine til I get back to it. Instead of leaving it on the kitchen counter, I will put the container in the laundry room sink so IF it does something unexpected, it will go down the drain and not all leak onto the wood floor.
