For this month I am delighted to be hosting Credit Crunch Munch, the place to find delicious frugal recipes and the brainchild of Helen from Fuss Free Flavours and Camilla from Fab Food 4 All.
Food that is in season is always good value, so you could base your recipe on or include foods that are in season in May: asparagus, rhubarb, new potatoes, lamb, watercress, spring onions, to name just a few.
Other money-saving ideas could be:
Dishes using cheaper ingredients – cheap cuts of meat or vegetarian
Meals using leftovers
Meals using up the ends of packets
Substitutions of cheaper ingredients
Meals that use less energy to cook
Faster cooking – less oven time for example
Batch cooking for the freezer
Food you have grown yourself
Meals from reduced food in the supermarket

To take part, simply blog about any money-saving idea that is vaguely food related. We do a full round up so I will be mentioning all the recipes that are submitted.
