Fresh Just Got Smarter!
Refrigerate fruits and vegetables immediately in Tupperware FridgeSmart containers.
Dry Garlic, Mature Onions, Potatoes, Tomatoes and unripe fruit are not recommended for refrigerator storage.
Fruits and vegetables are divided into 3 groups – High Breathers (leave both vents open), Medium Breathers (leave one vent open, one closed), and Low Breathers (keep both vents closed)
High (or Heavy!) Breathers include:
- Peas (including Snow Peas)
- Sweet Corn (dehusked)
- curry leaves
Medium Breathers include:
- Fresh Shallots
- Green Onions
- Lettuce, all types
- green chilli
- Ripe Apples
- Citrus (including Grapefruit, Orange, Mandarin, Lemon, Tangerine and Lime)
- Ripe Pear
Low Breathers include:
- Beet Root
- Button Mushrooms
- Ripe Berries
- All other ripe fruit not included in medium category(mango!)
- All fresh cut fruit
Although Tupperware works with the University of Florida and they have a lot figured out, here are some tips that you might find helpful:
- Try venting your mushrooms – I find they keep even longer
- Store cucumber at room temperature – you will find they do not go slimey. After a couple of weeks they may lose their colour, but they will not rot even once they are cut.Yes, we are used to putting everything in the fridge for longer storage, but think about this… have you ever seen cucumbers for sale in the refrigerated section of the produce store? I’ve always wondered why they were on a display sitting at room temperature, and now I know why!
- Vent your cheeses keeping 1 or both vents open
- Experiment with 1, 2 or no vents open – find out for yourself what works in your fridge
- Send me your experiances and ideas…..
