Can I Compost Baked Beans?

(From the Leftover food category | No comments yet - start the conversation)

baked_beansBaked beans are a “maybe”.

They’re just beans in a tomato-y sauce so will rot down quite quickly – but the salt and other flavourings may attract undesirable vermin to an open heap. In a pretty enclosed bin, they’ll probably be fine.

As for wormeries, worms are not a fan of baked beans (they can’t make toast to accompany it, so what’s the point?) so it’s best to leave them out for fear of offending your wiggly, composting friends.
