Hello,
Can I add already rotten apples and other smelly things to Bokashi bin? Sometimes carrots are covered with black mould etc.

Hi, thanks for the question.
We recommend keeping moldy food out of your bokashi bucket. Excessively moldy food will introduce too much blue/green mold and may send your bin bad. An occasional moldy grape or apple core is fine as long as it is accompanied by a more generous sprinkling of bokashi bran. But don’t overload your bokashi bin with rotten items. 
Happy composting 🙂
