Had another spoiled bunch of fruits and vegetables? Anything that goes to waste is a bad thing, especially if it’s food. Many people don’t know how to efficiently store their food to make them last longer, that’s why spoilage happens too often.
Isn’t it frustrating when your tomatoes get bruised? Or when the lettuce in your fridge is no longer crisp just when you’re about to make a garden salad? Things such as these are very common, but don’t be disappointed because there are plenty of ways to make your produce last longer!
For instance, if you want to retain the tomato’s best flavor and ripeness, do not put them in the refrigerator. Also, by putting your tomatoes alongside apples, they will ripen more quickly.
To preserve your lettuce’s crispiness, wash it, pat it dry with a paper towel, and then store it in a closed plastic bag. Unlike tomatoes, you may want to keep the apple away from the lettuce to prevent the leaves from wilting.
