Zero Waste Fruit Buns

It was about time I made a new treat, right? I suppose that is true… Not that no one has had any sort of treat in the meantime, but nothing worth documenting. The reason why I choose to share these in particular is that I find it important, for myself first and foremost, to encourage…
