My mom was the original Queen of Recycling. She could make anything out of nothing, and never threw anything away. I am nowhere near as good as her, but I did learn to not waste food. This morning I made apple pie balls. Amazing, if I do say so myself. But that left extra crushed nuts and figs. So I melted some dark chocolate, dipped the figs in it, and rolled them in the nuts. If you want to make these without first making apple pie balls, here is a recipe/. Now I had leftover chocolate. So I dipped yesterday's coconut cashew cookies in them!
Waste not, want not!
