Tuesday Tips & Tricks

12 Apr

Happy Tuesday!

Todays tip comes from Lucille (my mom!). It’s another simple, probably common sense tip but if you do it, you’ll be glad you did. It pertains to fresh fruit, particularly strawberries. I absolutely love strawberries and will buy them whenever they look good. One way to make your strawberries stay fresh longer is to only wash the ones you’re going to consume right away.

If you wash the whole container at once you’ll see that the strawberries will go bad faster and the outer skin will start to look dull long before it should. So wash your fruit before you’re ready to eat it and you’ll have fresh strawberries longer.

And in case you would like more tips on keeping food longer, read up at iVillage Food on their “7 Ways to Make Fresh Produce Last Longer
