My BFF Rachael Ray (ok, she does not know me…but I know her) taught me all about kitchen composting and how to compost all my kitchen scraps. She always keeps an empty bowl on the counter while cooking, to place any kitchen scraps that can go to the compost bin. When finished cooking, she simply dumps the contents of the bowl in her outdoor compost bin.
Now whenever I am cooking, I always have an empty bowl to fill with unused fruit and vegetable scraps. Recently I realized that I do not need to use a ‘clean bowl,’ instead I simply pull a used one from the dishwasher. Not only will the environment thank you, but so will your garden!
