Sometimes when you go to buy groceries, you get too excited and throw a little bit of everything in your cart. Fruits and vegetables continue to mature and, unfortunately, you end up throwing away a lot of what you bought because it’s no longer able to be consumed.
Proper food storage can save you money and prevent your fruits and vegetables from decaying quickly. It’s important that you take into account the climate of the place where you live, because this can also affect the maturation of food. The more humid and hot the place is, the more risky it is for some vegetables.
Bright Side shares with you some helpful tips to make your groceries last and stay fresh and crisp much longer.
1. Wrap the stems of bananas with plastic or aluminum foil
Bananas produce ethylene gas over their maturation period.
By covering the stems with plastic or aluminum foil, you can prevent it from spreading to other parts of the fruit, preventing the pulp from softening too quickly.
- It will keep them fresh for 4-5 days.
2. Place the onions in nylon stockings, twisting or tying knots between each of them so that they are separated.
Too much moisture could make onions rot in a short amount of time.
