How To Store Fresh Fruits And Vegetables
Welcome to The Cherry On Top.
We're back with more helpful hints in the kitchen and a bit of scrap-a-licious goodness, too!
We've recently started receiving organic fruit and vegetables delivered right to our door, once a week. We never know what we are going to get. So it's always an adventure. We will be having an abundance of these fresh lovelies and I want to be sure I get as much life out of them as possible. I went and did some research to make sure I had it right.
These wonderful strawberries are from our own garden. The only thing our garden gets is rain water and perhaps a banana peel or egg shells. No chemicals, ever. If you pick your own berries and want or need to store them it's important to remember not to wash them until you are ready to eat them and if possible, lay them flat and not stacked. Our berries never last because they are eaten almost immediately.
Here's a handy chart to help you with the rest of the typical fruits and vegetables. I had no idea that pairing particular fruits together actually promotes decay. Yikes! We've put a star next to those in the list.
Here's a glance at the lovely digital kit I used to make this chart. It's from my gal Amanda at A-Manda Creation. This kit is perfect for this time of year and it would be great for designing recipe cards, too.
Here's the proof, that the berries never make the jam! Hehehe...This kit is from LouCee Creations and you can see more of Farm Fresh over at the Digital Scrapbooking Studio by clicking on the image.
Thank you so much for making The Cherry a part of your day!
