The other day while perusing the internet I came across an article that blew me away. It was called How To Store Produce Without Plastic. Check it out now, don’t worry, I’ll still be here when you get back.
Wasn’t that great? How many of you just throw everything in the fridge? If you participate in a CSA, have a garden, or frequent Farmer’s Markets then it’s important to know how to store your fresh produce until you’re ready to eat it. That means STOP PUTTING YOUR TOMATOES IN THE FRIDGE! I mean it. They’re fine sitting on the counter, they like it there.
Anyway, I liked that article a lot but I like things organized, catagorized, and broken down into easy-to-read segments. So I spruced it up a little bit and reformatted it so that you can print off the information and keep it somewhere handy. All credit for the information goes to MyPlasticFreeLife.com, I’m just trying to make it easier to access this information. So, without further ado, here are two printable PDFs: one for veggies, one for fruits. Please click on the link to download the file, I’ve put the JPG’s up there so you can see what it looks like but it’s a much lower resolution (and only shows half of the veggie information)
