We’re not a fan of is how quickly fresh fruits and vegetables can go off. We’ve all had that moment of looking at a blackened banana, thinking, ‘didn’t I JUST buy you?’ Avoid the annoyance of wasted food.
- Berries are delicate. Try to avoid stacking them on top of each other, as they bruise and spoil easily.
- If you really want to maximise the lifespan of your peppers, slice ’em up and pop them in a zip lock bag in the freezer.
- Tomatoes are sensitive to the cold, and can lose texture and moisture and taste from being put in the fridge. Keep ’em on the counter.
- A lemon lasts around a week. In a zip lock bag in the chiller drawer of the fridge, however, they can last up to four weeks.
- Wrap celery, broccoli and lettuce in foil before refrigerating.
- Apples also last longer in the fridge.
