Get this:  we Canadians throw out  $17 billion worth of food a year.  17 billion!   And what most often hits the bin?  Fruits and vegetables, which (thank you, apple picking, garden-harvesting, etc)  you may have more of than at any other time of the year.  We all hate to waste so check this out:  Chatelaine magazine has 7 great ways to use leftover fruits and veg — including some surprising things you  thought you had to throw out, but shouldn’t (hello, basil stalks!)
