I've written before about my ongoing quest to avoid wasting food -- planning meals that use the same or similar ingredients in an effort to use up every last bit, and finding ways to transform leftovers into new dishes. Estimates vary, but according to statistics from the United States Department of Agriculture between 30 percent and 40 percent of the food grown or harvested in the United States is thrown out. Some of that happens at the farm and quite a bit happens at the grocery store, but consumers are responsible too. On average, we throw out as much as a quarter of the food we buy.
