I’ve been stepping away (or more like leaping away) from processed, boxed foods and bringing in more whole fresh foods, but there has been one side-effect that’s hard to deal with: food wastage. The thing is, an apple will not last as long as a jar of apple sauce… and we often end up with a garbage full of spoiled produce. Enough of that! I’ve put together a few tips to help us keep our food fresher, for longer:
In or out of the fridge? Depends on the fruit!
I love the idea above of repurposing a magazine rack as a hanging fruit basket to save counter space!
Berries need a little extra attention!
Berries get their own category for being the most delicate (high-maintenance) of fruit!
Hope that helps you – I know it’s been helping me and I’m excited to say that I have not had to throw out a punett of berries in a very long time now!
