Our scraps today were:

1 melon skin.

melon seeds..I give these to the hens anyway.

a small quantity of wispy potato skins from scraped new potatoes.

and that's all. We ate all the rest.

I could not feed the cat or three hens on that or they would attack me when I opened the back door.

TMG not come across bread made with carrot peelings yet but have found mock apricot flan which uses grated carrots instead of the apricots  :lol: :lol:
I cooked that for some 'war-time cookery' at the  local primary school, it really tasted 'apricotty'.  Also made carrot cookies, (lovely) and 'mock banana' which was boiled and mashed parsnips with added banana flavouring.  It fooled a lot of pupils!  My mother-in -law remembers having this in a children's home during the war and said it was the highlight of the week.  We don't know we're born!

Our rabbits diets are at least 50% scraps. It just means the green stuff that would usually go in the compost bin goes through them first. Melon skin, carrots tops, bolted lettuce, broccoli/cabbage leaves, raspberry/blackberry/apple prunings, grass, weeds etc.

They could live on it if it wasn't for the convenience of hay and a pinch of dry food for treats.

I imagine in wartime the rabbits would then of fed people and those scraps fed the dog/cat. Cats are pretty good at supplementing their diet with mice etc. anyway.

My Mum was talking about "kettle broth".
Consisted of bread soaked in warm water and seasoned with salt and pepper!
Times must have been hard.
 :(
My dogs eat a raw diet which probably consists of what many would term scraps, and they are healthier for it. Bones with very little meat, i.e chicken carcasses, turkey necks, unwashed tripe, they love pig tails! Our local pig farm saves them for me when they do their butchering. Now, I was brought up to believe that dogs shouldn't eat pork or chicken bones..............(cooked chicken bones should not be fed).
Think back to your childhood, did you know a dog with epilepsy, diabetes etc?
Oops, sorry, you've started me off again.......I'll slip away now!! ::)

yes, I always thought dogs shouldn't eat chicken bones as they "splinter" - bet he licks his lips when he see all your chickens  :D

I am a little surprised that nobody has mentioned Woolton Pie yet in this thread, especially if aiming to try rationbook cuisine.  (Still got my juvenile ration book in a drawer.  Ye gods where do the years go)

The Woolton pie is not scraps by any means, but still an ingredients list that feels as though a page has somehow been accidentally lost along the way, and generally described as "delicious" only by those for whom munching one is simply an experimental diversion in an otherwise much more rich diet and not part of a daily grim gustatory trudge.
