Food is too good to waste. Wouldn't you agree? In the United States alone approximately 40 percent of the food produced from the farm to the table is uneaten. In pounds that is roughly 20 per person every month. To help prevent unnecessary food waste, people should recognize the proper ways to treat food and understand the best place to store them for longevity.
Does it seem like your potatoes have winked at you with their growing eyes? Or have you noticed your once white onions are turning a sickly shade of green? These unhealthy additions can be prevented if they are stored properly.
Store potatoes and squash separately from green onions and garlic to ensure longevity. Remember these food items should be stored in a cool, dark and dry environment to thrive. Keep them out of the fridge in a cupboard for a refreshing taste.
If you notice your drawer of fruit ripening faster than you can consume, you can slow the process by purchasing a small ethanol gas absorber. The technology absorbs ethanol, the ripening gas, and helps fruits maintain flesh strength and sustenance.
These delicious fruits must be stored away from all other fruits to maintain freshness for a long period of time. The stem of a bunch of bananas releases extremely high dosages of ethanol gas, which makes them go bad at a rapid pace. To help maintain freshness wrap banana stems in Saran wrap.
Maintaining the crisp crunch of fresh lettuce is extremely difficult. It seems as soon as you get it in the fridge, it begins to wilt instantaneously. To help prevent the quick decay, wrap it in a paper towel to help absorb secreted moisture and place it back in the plastic bag you transported it in.
