6 Ways to Make Your Groceries Last Longer

Keep your groceries fresh longer!

If you’ve ever wondered how you can make your fruits and veggies last longer, you’ve come to the right place.

Banana

To slow bananas from ripening, wrap the stem in plastic wrap.

You could also put your bananas in the fridge.  The banana peel will most likely turn black so don’t be alarmed—the insides won’t be though!

Tomato

Did you know tomatoes lose moisture through it’s stem? We didn’t either. The best way to store tomatoes is by pulling off its stem, flipping them over (stem side down), and not putting it in the fridge.

Green Onion

Chop off as much as you need and regrow the rest! Make sure to only add enough water to cover its roots. Place somewhere with ample sunshine.

Strawberry

When you take home a carton of these ruby gems, start by picking out the squishy strawberries if there are any.

Mix 1 part white vinegar and 8 part water to gently rinse the berries.

The vinegar helps destroy bacteria and mold spores on strawberries and allow it stay fresh longer. Rinse, drain, gently dry, and store in the fridge in air tight container with a paper towel.

Asparagus

Cut off the ends of your asparagus bunch, stand them up in a cup or mason jar filled with water, wrap its top with damp paper towel, and store in the fridge.

Potato, Onion, Garlic

When placed together, these produce will collectively spoil faster. Best to store them separately in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated place in your kitchen.
