Oranges and other citrus fruit will often appear dried up or bruised from the outside but inside awaits a wonderful addition to any breakfast.
Bruised apples make wonderful pie or apple sauce to feed the kids. You don't need to carve away the bruise just remove the worst of the damage, perhaps the entire peel, core, slice and bake.
Scabby potatoes and rough looking carrots only require a peel to reveal their true beauty.
Aren't they gorgeous?
Over ripe tomatoes make wonderful pasta sauce, salsa, or soup. Peel dice and cook.
More often than not the food we discard merely requires a paradigm shift in the way we think. So carve it up and start diggin' in.
