I absolutely love grocery shopping! In fact, one of my own favourite things related to customers is expand their food choice horizons by taking them on a guided grocery tour. Whether it’s Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Fairway a local grocery store or farmer’s market, I’m in paradise. Perusing the aisles, reading nutrition labels, checking out the most up-to-date and best new products or simply purchasing some wonderfully wholesome and fresh produce.
In my opinion there is nothing like maintaining new produce on hand. Selecting the highest quality items is extremely significant as is at-home storage. There are some things to remember when you are storing fresh produce that will help enhance taste and also longevity. The 3 regions of storage would be the refrigerator, counters and pantry. Apples (after several days on the counter ) artichokes, asparagus, beets, berries, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cherries, corn, cucumbers, dark leafy greens, figs, grapes (green or red), green onions (scallions), leeks, radishes, sugar or snap peas, squash and string beans should be kept in the fridge. All fresh produce stored in the refrigerator ought to be held in perforated plastic bags, rather from the storage drawers. Garlic, onions and potatoes, should be stored away from light in a cabinet or cabinet. What is left the counter-top! This may be anywhere in your kitchen that is away from direct sunlight, possibly in a bowl or other container which allows air to circulate, allowing produce to keep to ripen.
A couple of guidelines to remember when at the store choosing fresh produce:-
- See the way a piece of production feels on your hands. Is it Soft, form or just right? Compare it to the other options.
- Avoid purchasing produce with any observable sterile or soft spots on it.
- Many times the freshest make are kept at the back row or Bottom of the pile, so make sure that you search around.
