Food Storing!

This should be a simple guide to help you keep your veggies their best for longer.

 

Kale- wrap kale in a wet paper towel or dish towel and put in crisper. Should last 10 days.

Cauliflower- put cauliflower head in a loose plastic bag with a paper towel inside to absorb any extra moisture. Cauliflower should last 4-7 days. May brown just a little and that is ok! 

Citrus- citrus can be left on the counter OR can be thrown in the fridge. 

Cilantro- when you get home trim the cilantro stems just a little bit. Then put the bunch of cilantro in a small cup with water. Then put a plastic bag over the leaves. Should last 10 days. 

Avocado- well avocados can be tricky. You want to eat avocados when they're black and give a little to the touch. But they're not always picked that way. So when you get your avocado and it's green you can leave it on your counter to ripen or put it in a dark cabinet. Try putting them in a brown paper bag in a dark cabinet to speed up the ripening process :)

Carrots- carrots do best in a wet environment. When you get home remove the stems (you can eat them, try carrot top pesto). Then rinse the carrots in cold water. Then put your carrots in a Tupperware or glass container with a half inch of water on the bottom of the container. Carrots should last a very long time!

Apples- Apples can just be left on your counter in the fruit bowl. Or thrown in the fridge. Up to you!
