Whenever we have left-over fruit that'll go off if not eaten today, we chop up all the parts we can save up, quite small and freeze the mix, sometimes first cooking it up with a little sugar and even less water. That fruit mush waits in the deepfreeze until the next baking day. Not often that we add veges to the mush, but we did once pop in some cauliflower once, and another time broccoli, though both were not noticable once baked, probably dominated by the fruit.

Plus grated ginger, a favourite here. We grate it up fine and store it in an ice-cube tray, and pop one or two into cake and loaf mixtures.
My aim here is not how to use left over fruit and veg (I felt like I was sacrificing those wonderful fresh cherries yesterday ) but which ones can be turned into cakes and breads.

Plums and apricots, they're great in various cakes or pies.

Blotkake - a Norwegian butterless sponge. A take on it anyway with local fruit.

This is the after picture where it looks a bit messy.

Banoffee pie too.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Pheewwwww, I spent the entire month of July feeding people visiting us.

Fear not, we always sat outside in the garden and physical distancing rules were always adhered to!!

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

I made "Samosadillas" today. A Samosa for lazy people who don't like to deep-fry at home (and are tolerant enough to know that not everything always must be traditional and mixing international ingredients is fun).

Name:  Samosollinos.jpg

And the cilantro-dip was absolutely yummi!

I will definitely do this again. And again. And again. Could also work well for parties, the famous Swiss "Apéros".
Check it out, if you like.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

I never would have imagined reworking samosas like that -> I'm terrified of deep frying anything so this looks like a great alternative... now I just need to get my hands on some garam masala...

Sorry, I didn't see that post. Garam masala is easy to find in any Asian shop.

Ohhhhh, Blřtkake, my grandma used to make it for us as kids, it's the typical Norwegian birthday cake. Usually you make it with peaches inside, or whatever seasonal fruit you can get your hands on. But cream and berries on the outside are a must.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland



The good old fashioned art of turning the abundance of the harvest into preserves, additionally I experimented a little and created a dark red crema d'aceto, too.

All in a days work
