Have you ever bought groceries to find that they only last you a couple days? Well, here we have a couple of hacks that will help make your produce last a bit longer than we are used to:
1. Lemon Juice on Avocados
You slice up an avocado to put on a salad or sandwich but what do you do with the other half or how do you keep it fresh? The trick with this is just to lightly brush the other half with some lemon juice or olive oil to prevent from browning.
2. Apples and Potatoes
Store an apple with your sack of potatoes to keep them from sprouting.
3. Wrap Bananas
To slow down the ripening process of your banana, try wrapping the stems with plastic and keeping them away from other produce.
4. Berries & Vinegar
Wash your berries in a water-vinegar bath then dry and store in the fridge making sure to line the container with paper towels.
5. Storing Leaving Greens
After washing your leafy greens, wrap them in a paper towel and store them in a plastic ziploc bag. The paper towels will absorb the excess water which will keep the lettuce from wilting.
