Gleaning Apples at Butler’s Orchard

Butler's Orchard

Following gleaning at Butler’s Orchard, we joined with co-hosts Silver Spring United Methodist Church, STEP Chef Scott Ulen, MoCo Food Council and KindWorks volunteers to cook gleaned apples into apple crisp. Using recovered food, we cooked other delicious dishes from recovered food such as crostini with greens, and fall grain salad. The 100 prepared meals were donated CFR network member, the Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless. We also prepared appetizers and apple crisp that were served at other Community Food Rescue Week events.

Tip of the Day

Don’t throw out those wilted vegetables!
A quick soak in ice water for 5 to 10 minutes is often enough to reinvigorate wilted veggies. Bendy carrots will straighten right up, lettuce will crisp, and limp broccoli will find its strength again. And even if they can’t be restored, some veggies you intended to eat raw — carrots, celery, and greens — can still shine in a cooked dish.
