Make your produce last longer!

I am always on the look out for some great tips, here is a list of five tips that you might find handy.

Vegetables

  • Got too many lemons on hand? Freeze lemon juice in an ice cube tray. Then, use them in sauces, soups, or drinks.
  • Separate them apples, bananas, and peaches. Did you know that these fruits emit a gas called ethylene, which helps vegetables ripen faster? Store these fruits in different areas or containers.
  • Want crispier veggies? Line the crisper drawer in your fridge with paper towels, which will help absorb moisture and keep your produce from spoiling faster.
  • Got limp carrots? No worries, soak peeled carrots in ice water for a few hours to bring back some snap.
  • Keep avocados, tomatoes, onions, and peppers on the counter rather than the fridge. Some fruits and vegetables need different environments, and some thrive best at room temperature.
