So this is not really an edible recipe. A few weeks ago be bought a nifty plastic worm farm from Aldi (have I mentioned how much I love Aldi?) that sits in the garden under the shade of the mango tree. It’s filled with 1200 earth worms that munch their way through our kitchen scraps and produce a delicate brew called worm-tea. The tea is diluted in water and used for fertilising our Orchids, herbs, veges and pot plants. Its early days but the little tykes seem happy with the snacks we give them. We have a composting bucket under the sink where all vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, and eggshells are stored, I have been alternating giving them the whole scraps and making this tasty worm-shake.
kitchen scraps (non-acidic, so no citrus, onions or pineapple)
2 cups water
Place all the ingredients in a microwave-proof bowl and cover with cling-wrap. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Add mixture to a blender and blend to a thickshake consistency. Allow to cool before adding to the worm-farm.
