Top Tip on Freezing Tortillas

We are very fond of tortillas - generally wrapped round a spicy chilli with a handful of salad and a dollop of creme fraiche.  Eaten thus, a packet of eight does our family of 3/4 for one meal.  However, when called into service as a bit of light relief from the boring sandwich, we only require a couple at a time.

The trouble is that, even when the packet is resealed with a clip, the remaining tortillas tend to dry out.  Freezing them does preserve their shelf life but I find it difficult to prise them apart when they are rock solid.

Yesterday I tried a different technique. I rolled each tortilla into a tight tube and replaced them in their packet.  This makes them much easier to remove individually.

Ta dah!

National Zero Waste Week 2012

The theme of this year's week is One More Thing and mine is to make more effective use of my freezer.

Dinner this evening was lamb tagine leftover from yesterday.  There's still a small portion remaining which I shall freeze, clearly labelled, of course!

If you've chosen to do One More thing then I hope you've got off to a good start too.
