Zero Waste Tastes

Food is the #1 material in landfills. For every 10 pounds of food produced in the US, 4 pounds go to waste. When food goes to the landfill, it's similar to tying food in a plastic bag. The nutrients in the food never return to the soil.

Although food scraps seem to be natural and good for breaking down, without a proper decomposing process, food that sits in landfills takes years to break down, emitting methane.

Treats by Taboni seeks to decrease our waste consumption of food scraps and find ways to become ZERO WASTE!

Making simple syrups are delicious ways to use extra fruit or fruit scraps. Fill a jar with equal parts sugar and fruit and let sit. It's that easy! You can have syrup for pancakes, ice cream, or put it back into your baking for future recipes. We always have extra jars lying around, and give the glass, the fruit, and the sugar and extra life.

In addition to fresh fruit, you can also use fruit scraps. After peeling our mango for Mango Anise Thumbprint Cookies, we put the peel, pit, and lemon rind in a pot. Letting it slowly come to a simmer, then straining to create a syrup and making the house smell great. You can add sugar, spices, and whatever fruit scraps you have on hand.

Our Peach Eclairs gave us a lot of left over vanilla filling and peach coulis, so we baked up a quick tart shell and had a whole extra dessert!

Although it may seem small, the impact we have can be large. Let us know the ways you have tried to cut down on your food waste when baking!
