The average family trashes around 14% of their purchased food because it has run out of date. Completely unnecessary, if you know how to store your food properly and make it last longer!
These few very simple and effective tricks will extend the lifespan of your edibles:
- Use airtight food storage boxes for leftovers; simply wrapping a plastic foil over a bowl isn’t good enough.
- Keep bananas in the fridge; they will still go brown but the inside will last a lot longer.
- If you plan on keeping meat in the fridge, use vacuum sealed bags with the air squeezed out.
- Store fruit and vegetables seperately; apples for instance give off
gas called ethylene that speeds ripening in vegetables.
