How to Keep Produce Fresh

January 29, 2015 6:02 pm

You love purchasing fresh produce because of its numerous health benefits and wide variety of uses, but unfortunately those heirloom tomatoes and juicy strawberries don’t last forever. So how can you make your produce last a bit longer than just a few days? Here are some smart tips.

  1. Separate fruits and veggies. Although you may be tempted to unload all of your groceries into the refrigerator as soon as you buy them, be sure to separate fruits and vegetables to extend their lifespan. Fruits give off high levels of ethylene, a gas that can cause surrounding vegetables to spoil well before they should.
  2. Trim the dead leaves off of vegetables. If you purchase veggies like cabbage or spinach, be sure to remove the mushy, wilted leaves to prevent them from spoiling the whole bunch.
  3. Don’t assume that all fruits will ripen. Although fruits like apples, avocados, and mangoes will continue to ripen if left out on the counter, many other fruits will simply deteriorate. Be sure to refrigerate things like berries and citrus fruits to prevent this from happening.
  4. Keep more delicate produce in the front of the refrigerator. Foods kept near the back of the refrigerator are more likely to freeze, so be sure to store things like berries, celery, and spinach near the front.
