Make Your Produce Last Longer

Does it seem like your veggies go bad right after you buy them?

Here are some tips to keep them fresher longer:

Tip # 1

Remove pre-washed greens from their original container and toss any spoiled pieces. Dry off excess moisture and store in plastic bags with a layer of paper towels.

Tip # 2

Pat dry any wet vegetables such as carrots and place them in storage bags

Tip # 3

Store unwashed root vegetables like potatoes and onions in a cool, dark spot, like a pantry.

Tip # 4

Keep tomatoes at room temperature to maintain their flavor. Refrigeration can make them mushy. If you need them to ripen, place them in a brown paper bag at room temperature.

Tip # 5

Remove mushrooms from the original container, then dry and store in a brown paper bag. Put them in the fridge, but not the crisper section.
