Saving what's Soft, Soggy or Stale : Fruit Salad

Over the past few weeks, I think I've noticed the words "food waste"  being mentioned more than ever before. Be it news stories, magazine features or even Jamie's Money Saving Meals, the advice that we should REserve, and not REject the tail-end of our weekly grocery shop has been resounding. Whilst freezing fruit's a neat little tip encouraged by both Jamie & Tesco's, I've found another useful way to revitalise fruit that really is on its last limbs. 

Come on, we're all guilty of throwing out that browning banana, the rapidly wrinkling apple, a few shrivelled grapes or strawberries that are slightly on the soft side. Sometimes, too, fresh fruit simply hasn't lived up to the colourful promises it made - think pale pears or plain peaches. This salad is SUCH a hit in our household that fruit seldom goes to waste anymore. In fact, when odds and ends are spotted hanging about in the basket, fruit salad has been demanded all summer long. It's ideal if you're fasting (more later) at the moment, it's as easy as 1-2-3, and, really, makes the fruit we sometimes eat with silent resentment, sing. 

What You'll Need: 

- Fruit
- Single Cream
- 1/2 can Condensed Milk

What to Do:

1. Chop up any, and I mean any, fruit you want [to get rid of].

2. Wash it all and, depending on quantity of aforemetioned chopped fruit, swirl over 1/2 - 3/4 of a can of condensed milk. Follow this up with single-cream, mixing well, until it has reached your desired consistency.

3. Chill in the fridge for an hour-ish and simply indulge for an absolutely delectable dessert or simply a cool, refreshing snack.
