Why Minimizing Food Waste Matters
I picked more than 30 liters of mushrooms during last weekend, on Sunday alone 20 liters. Cantharellus cibarius, Craterellus cornucopioides & Cantharellus tubaeformis. They all belong to the same mushroom family, cantharellus. Safe to eat even raw.
I tried to sell them online, locally, but it seems that no one wants them so I have to prepare them & put them in the fridge/dry some of them. At least I know what I am going to eat this Winter… mushroom soup, mushroom pie, mushroom in every dish…
There is a huge imbalance in what we consume/need/produce, not only concerning the agricultural sector. At the same time, we have created systems where yields are being maximized at the cost of quality, and soils suffering. So basically we produce more on smaller plots but we have to eat more to get all necessary vitamins etc. Do you think this is normal?
I would also never eat ANY endangered species, including any snakes, bears, whales, sharks etc. I hope you feel and act the same way. And that you make sure when you consume marine products, you know they are not endangered/caught by sustainable fisheries. E.g. concerning tuna fishing is that a lot of dolphins get caught in fishing nets. Make sure to buy MSC certified seafood only, unless you are fishing yourself and know that your methods won´t harm the marine environment.
