Avoiding food waste
Just what IS this anyway? I've finished off a jar of stewed "breakfast prunes" that were lurking in the fridge. Good to use them up, got a great jar for repurposing. I stopped myself, however, from tossing out the "juice" from the jar. After reading the label, as I suspected, it contains corn syrup, a form of sugar, so I've saved this juice for making an upcoming batch of muffins. Using Tightwad Gazette's basic muffin recipe, I should be able to easily incorporate this into a recipe, reducing the sugar added to the batter, as a result. I am thinking a spice muffin of some sort, perhaps date, or apple sauce.
