I sure do enjoy eating banana skin infused with pesticides and all the shit they put on it on another continent

Nothing special but I've been saving apple peels and making apple tea with them, it works really well, I do the same thing with shrimp peels for broths... Fonio reminds me a lot of millet, which, sadly, isn't very popular where I come from even though it's very, very good for you :)

Honestly, I didn't know what the fuss was all about with the okra, since in German it is pronounced very similarly. But I agree on the Yerba mate, that was horrendous 😂 but otherwise great video!

I tried making a banana peel curry and although it was alright initially, I couldn't get through it. It could be the recipe I followed though since it didn't involve any soaking/marinating.

What do you mean plant based non-alcoholic. Alcohol is legit vegan
Oh no.. primal spirit, I was not a fan. Yeah lots of spice, which I didn't like.

Those Botanical drinks sound interesting. It seems like non alcoholic drinks are getting more popular. The beer app Untapped even started the year with a non alcoholic beer month. So far 'One for the Road Brewing co' is the best non alcoholic beer I have found. I am not sure why the banana peel thing is suddenly being considered a trendy thing. Check out Kela Ravaiya it is a Gujrati dish. Bhavans kitchen uploaded a great recipe for it about a decade ago. With a recipe like that you do not have to worry about what to do with the banana either because she uses the banana too. I sometimes think that quite a few food trends have been foods that other cultures and people have eaten that have just made it over west and then its considered trendy. I havent heard of Fonio and I am going to see if I can buy that where I live. I wonder if its anything like Teff that is used for making Injera because that is delicious!

My family and I are testing our way through what alcohol free gin has to offer. There are some really brilliant ones out there! the one thing that I think can never be fully replicated alcohol free is whisky. I only tried one so far, tbh, but that one had won prizes and is basically a smokey syrup. reaaaaaly weird

One of my favorite things about Sorted has always been that y'all go into the origin/history of the ingredients/dishes you cook. Absolutely love the continued conversations of how the growing market for certain "trend" food items (quinoa, for example) impacts the communities that produce them, and have produced them for generations. Additionally, the discussion of the environmental impact of certain foods is interesting to hear in a world that is growing more conscious of this issue. It is clear that the research is done for these videos and there is a genuine appreciation for the discussion of these complex topics in the content y'all produce. Food is never just "food" and I keep coming back to your videos because Sorted is one of the few channels I've seen which goes beyond the taste and the trend.

FYI it takes WAY more soy to make a beef jerky thank a soy jerky. (Not even mentioning the water use, land use etc). Still much more sustainable the vegan option.

Plan for the bank holiday weekend: buy 6 bananas, peel them, freeze the fruit for smoothies, and make that lush looking curry. Cheers boys! 👍 (I've also heard banana skins are good for a bbq pulled pork replacement 🙂)

Instead of that suggestion, Vegan chef vs chef do: vegan chef vs normal (something basic) vs vegan normal (with recipe). Like i tend to make cheeseburgers sometimes, just meat, cheese, sauce and buns. But could a normal use a vegan burger and make something better with help (something we viewers could do). And how would a vegan chef stack up against that

Some soy is actually grown in the UK as well as in Austria and France. Soy-based products in Germany, where I'm from, often contain soy grown in the EU whilst soy grown in Latin America is mainly imported to feed animals. Especially products from organic brands often try to use European soy instead of soy grown in Latin America. :)

For the first one: Calling it 'plant-based' would be a bit... questionable as alcohol for the most part is generally plant based. It's more like if you want to be extra-pretentious about it. But having salon-capable fruit-drinks that aren't mostly for children is a good thing to have. There's not much things to choose from as of now. Second one: That slight dissappointed and helpless 'ebbers..' from Jamie really had me chuckle. Looks like it really doesn't taste good. :D Imitating typical Meat-stuff, like Jerky is, might not be the smartest idea society had so far. I'm not particularly looking forward to that. My last missadventure was that i've gotten fried rice with some kinda meat-substitute (tasted like carton and had a similar texture as wet carton as well) because of a mess-up in the kitchen i suppose. (Rip my chicken) I wasn't particularly thrilled after a few bites. But for whoever lieks it: enjoy it! The Banana-skin is prety new to me but i suppose it can be a thing if cooked well. :D To the Fonia: I'm a sceptical as it'll be most likely marketed as the new super-food (After Cranberries, Quinoa, Avocado and whatever else), causing a massive increase in demand, which also causes massive deforestation to grow it and as soon as the hype is over, the damage will be done. I mean, if it would be possible to grow it locally, then i have no issues with it. But if it's shipped all the way from africa.. it get's a clear 'no' from me. I'm glad that you've pointed out that vegan alternatives aren't necessarily better for health as well as for the world as many have very long travel distances and alot of forests and jungle is still burned down in favour of creating space to grow these ingrediences.

I sent an email to you guys several months back about Three Spirit Drinks! I'm so happy you decided to review them!! 💕 Knowing your thoughts and opinions on them makes me more likely now to go and invest my money in them as I was unsure just reading the info on the website. Also Jamie, with loads of bananas I like to slice them all up and put them in a container in my chest freezer for things like smoothies, oatmeal or just to snack on as frozen bananas are lush! It's nice when you find a bunch in the store that is about to go off that is reduced in price as you can do this and save them. Right there you will have multiple banana skins that you could use in a recipe if you'd like without having to eat them all at once :)

Thankyou for talking about how communities sometimes or many times even, miss out on their own food because of trend or new found health elements. I never really thought about that except once with bamboo. In Australia at least, bamboo products are around every corner, under every rock...i always thought what about the animals who eat the bamboo or use it as part of their bedding/nests .....i knew about dirt cheap pay or corrupt producing but never really thought of communities not able to even afford their own food...makes me feel like a thief a bit...glad u brought this to our attention.

I love your video's but could you please stop making these taste testing ones and be so positive about them. I already bought 60 EUR worth of salt rocks, where I just put one on the table when I have unsuspecting guests come over for dinner, and once the food comes I just stare them down while slowly grating my rock (of salt). Granted it's great fun but now I also purchased 80EUR in 3 bottles of alcohol that isn't even alcohol. My neighbors are going to talk about my mental health if this goes on.

I'm finally done with you guys. Promoting a billion dollar corporation selling their garbage like a real product is the line for me. Banana peels are 100% biodegradable. What you're doing is paying billionaires for their trash. Also, has there been a single one of these videos where they didn't promote complete fallacies? Climate Change? You mean that thing where there wouldn't be snow on earth anymore in 2010... yeah, that's totally real. New York is also underwater just as they predicted. Trust the science... even though it changes every decade when it's proven false by reality. Eat bugs and trash! It'll help the people of Zaire... or something! And nevermind all those pesky nutrients you get from meat. You don't really need them. Oh, and soy? It needs to be in every single product and you should consume roughly 6 tons of it per year. Again, nevermind that it's the active ingredient in estrogen medicine. It's great for men!

the skins of bananas have a whole shitload of pesticides in them tho since they do use chemicals to protect the crops and they do so very harsh because it does not affect the banana flesh cause the skin is thrown away , and dont tell me mister africa/india/china banana farmer uses bio chemicals because i am never gonna believe that shit , he needs money and he will use the cheapest and most powerfull spray possible

In North America we grow soybeans from the deep south all the way up into Canada, can anyone tell me why they are not grown in the UK?
Christine Cuneo
Christine Cuneo 20 napja
"The likely reason is that the UK climate is not warm enough for soy beans, even in the relatively warm and sunny summer of 2014. We therefore recommend that small growers avoid this difficult crop. Future research could investigate whether growing soy under glass is more successful." (Permaculture ,org,uk)

Honest question. How would upcycling food be better for the environment than composting it? Is there an environmental difference between me eating a banana peel vs a couple of bugs, worms and plants eating them?
Nickolai 20 napja
There are a lot of reasons why vegan alternatives haven't reached traditional meat prices yet - Meat and dairy is heavily subsidized, so a lot of the price tag is payed through taxes - Economies of scale. Demand for vegan alternatives hasn't reached that of traditional meat yet, and production is therefore more expensive per unit. - Demand, another consequence of the lower demand is that a larger percentage of product costs goes into things like storage for supermarkets, and wasted food, as companies has to gauge a brand new market. - Supply, there is a lot more competition within the market for traditional meat products, than there is within the market for vegan alternatives - Startup costs, a lot of the companies producing vegan alternatives are still really new, so they still have to cover the costs from buying expensive equipment, that likely is less available than equipment for a hundred year old industry (industrial revolution)
Nickolai 20 napja
On the note of soy protein. A large part of why animal farming is so devastating in terms of climate change, is exactly because these animals are fed a *lot* of imported soy beans
Nickolai 20 napja
Also, yes, globally meat intake is rising a lot, partly due to a lot of people rising out of poverty and EU funding for meat advertisements directed at these populations

I'm interested in the alcohol free drinks because so far I've never enjoyed the taste of alcochol but you can't be fun if you don't drink alcohol (hard sarcasm there) so I hope that trend catches on. Also, I have heard about cooking with plantain peels but I heard it from people in my country who were hit very hard by scarcity or just no money so I didn't know if that could be a thing or just.. you know, having something to eat.. well, that got sad there

The vegan one is just another product trying to be something it isn’t. Vegan food can be so delicious when it’s done in a way that celebrates itself, but every time it pretends to be something like meat or compete with a meat product (which it isn’t) it just doesn’t work (there are exceptions to the rule).

Vegan is an eating disorder. The unsustainable way they make the food is not unlike the way electric cars are assembled. We are using up the natural resources to make somebody feel better about what we are taking from the earth. The deeper you get into it, the more you know that, "you" are destroying the natural environment so you can tell me how much you are saving the animals and the environment. Circular logic.

Alan Mac
Alan Mac Napja
@Vicky What cockeyed logic is this? 'Okra' is a common English noun. You pronounce it as you would locally and recognise that its pronunciation may differ across the English-speaking world. To think that we should all pronounce it as 21st C southerners do is to show complete ignorance of how language works.
Vicky Napja
@Alan Mac and the place where it was exposed to english to become an "english" word is the southeastern united states, and there, you say it "oak-ra". You wouldn't say "cajun" as "cah-jun", you'd say it how they say it there: "Cay-djun"
Alan Mac
Alan Mac 2 napja
@Vicky 'Okra' is an English word whose first record is from an English colony of what became the USA. How it may have been derived is simply guesswork but it is undoubtedly an English word.
Vicky 2 napja
@Alan Mac uh... No it isn't. It's west african. Edit: The etymology comes from west african "nkru" which when it was taken over by slaves to the southern US turned the word into okra. It has no origin in the english language, and should be pronounced the way the people who use it do. OAK-ra

Alcohol-free cocktails and meat-free jerky. May I just point out how unhealthy both of these heavily processed frankenfoods are? The energy requirements and time necessary to make these fakes are just staggering. Seems like posing in the absence of knowledge, like buying a new hybrid vehicle while you already have a functioning conventional car.

I started this video and my husband heard the segment on Three Spirits non-alcohol, and he was immediately interested. He doesn't drink but I do and this sounds like a good compromise for when we want something a little more special than sparkling apple juice to celebrate with. We're looking forward to trying the Social Elixir soon. Cheers for getting us sorted!

I am loving that there has been an increase in the conversations about the environmental impact of food, the issue of food waste and the importance of consumer education to make necessary changes to help our planet. I have been trying to be more conscious about my footprint and I have found that the kitchen is a great place to start to make impactful changes. Though I am not a vegan, I am constantly looking for vegan recipes and products to try (especially those with a small footprint) so I can incorporate them into my more eco-conscious habits and routine. The upcycled food idea is fantastic! I would love to see a battle where a percentage of the dish is made using upcycled food or food scraps from a different dish you make in another video. I don't know if there is an "Ingredient Upcycling" or "Kitchen Sustainability" badge for the normals, but it could be a good one.

Thank you SO much for videos like these, they are eye-openers and so inspirational ❤
SamuriLemonX18 21 napja
Anyone else think there's some sort of psychological/subconscious component of wanting to eat meat? I just can't imagine myself eating that jerky and actually thinking it's on par with the "real" thing. That might be it, that it doesn't feel "real", like I'm substituting reality for an imitation of reality. That is deeply off putting for me and I'm not 100% sure why

Too much time invested in veg and sustainability sometimes... Would like to see it mixed up a bit. I don't mind these topics as segments, but the shows feel preachy and get a bit boring if the whole episode follows that pattern. I start tuning out and thinking: here they go again... Fonio segment was appreciated though... Learned something there at least.
