Keeping Fruit Fresh

 

By Nikki Willhite

Fruit can be one of the hardest food items to not waste. Here are some tips to help keep your fruit fresh.

In General

When you cut up your fruit, and are waiting to add it to a salad, jello, pie, etc., soak it either in a little water with some lemon juice, or a couple of crushed Vitamin C tablets.

If you are serving your fruit fresh, toss it lightly in lemon juice. If you are serving it cut in half, brush the surface with a pastry brush dipped in lemon juice.

Apples

Apple rot seems to spread! Try and store them so that they don't touch each other.
Cut apple pieces also stay fresh soaked in salted water for 10 minutes.

Bananas

Ripen bananas by putting a wet towel around them and placing them in a paper sack.
(Always be careful when buying bananas. They can be shipped with nasty tropical insects hidden between the bananas).

Berries

Fresh berries are fragile. Do not wash until you are ready to eat them.
When you bring them home from the store, lay them out, and remove the bruised and soft ones.
Before you buy any fresh berries, check the bottom of the cartoon to make sure it is not stained from overripe berries.
