Make Your Produce Last Longer

With prices climbing out of
control these days, you want
to get the most from your
grocery purchases. Produce
especially doesn’t last as long
as it should.

Try these tips & you may be surprised….

–  Store celery in aluminum foil. I don’t know why, but it lasts up to a month when stored this way.

– For iceberg lettuce, simply remove the core & wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Believe it or not, it will last 3x as long if stored this way.

 – Store all other produce in “Ziploc Fresh Produce Bags” (the green box).  It is this cooks experience, that your produce will last much longer using this brand versus others.

 – Once peppers, zucchini, cucumbers & squash are cut, store in foil. This helps prevent them from getting “slimy.”

 – Onions & potatoes  should be stored @ room temperature in a dark, cool place for best longevity. However, shallots, if not going to be used right away, should be refrigerated.
