I had a reader email me the other day wanting to know what was the best way to store her produce from the farmer’s market.
Her problem is that it was spoiling at an unusually rapid rate. She stores it in plastic in her crisper at the bottom of her refrigerator.
Seeing that we are in the midst of summer harvest I wanted to get you input on how you store your fresh fruits and veggies.
Since I have a garden I usually either pick what we need for that meal or if I have a large quantity I freeze, can, or dehydrate it right away so we have very little stored in our frig.
So what method have you found to be the best? Do you wash then store, store unwashed? Do you keep it in plastic bags or out? Do you have any secrets for prolonging the life of fresh produce?
