Hello and welcome to my post all about how to store food! If you read my post about how to save money at the supermarket you know that I am all about saving money and making things last! You’ll also know if you read my post about how to make your kitchen look luxe, that I like to unpackage my stuff!! So, let’s hop right in for my how to store food tips!
How to store food- refrigerate condiments
Maybe controversial but I think they last longer! Same with jam!
How to store food- open packets of vege
Open the plastic wrapping or better still take it off when you get your vege home, it will stop it sweating and make it last longer!
How to store food- use your salad draws
I don’t know the science behind this- but I do find that my salad lasts longer if I use these! I also pop some vege in there too!
How to store food- fruit
You can refrigerate some fruit if you want to, but not bananas, I keep my fruit in a bowl, but again- not with the bananas- they make things ripen quicker!
How to store food- use the dark
Potatoes shouldn’t be put in the fridge but they do like the dark- it slows their decay process, I keep mine in a dresser draw.
How to store food- air tight containers
If you can, unpackage items that come in bags, if you can put them in an airtight container you’ve got more chance of making them last longer once opened!
