Exhausted of throwing away mushy, curdled and spoiled perishables from your kitchen? Spoiled, unmanaged and over stored foods remain one of the biggest contributors in a families 'waste pile' of a budget analysis. So, it may just be time to take some action to save your groceries, extra effort and a fat tuft of cash. Worry not; we are here with these 4 clever ways to store kitchen perishables to make your kitchen pocket friendly again.
Herbs form an essential part of our everyday cooking. They pack a punch not just as a flavor bomb but also with their hidden health benefits.
The trick with storing herbs is immediate action. As soon as you get them from your green grocer trim the bottom half of herbs like Coriander, Dill, Parsley and Basil. After which all herbs barring Basil can be stored in a watered glass with the tops covered with cling wrap. Once placed in the refrigerator, they'll last you over 2 weeks. Basil on the other hand can be stored without water and on the counter. Just a bonus tip, basil once left on the counter too long can naturally dry and viola, you have dried basil.
An essential in all homes, a healthy snack and super beneficial for our gut health but a pain to store beyond a day. If running to the super market every other day to buy bananas sounds extremely tiring to you here is a clever way to store this kitchen perishable, separate each banana and cover the stem with cling film and viola, long lasting Bananas.
Now this one I personally was most surprised with. Store your potatoes in a cool and dark place, away from onions (they make potatoes sprout quicker) and in a well-ventilated box/bag.
Sweet, tart, delicious and full of antioxidants, a girl’s best friend; but with a shelf life less than a night, they become quite difficult to manage. For mold-free berries store them unwashed and in paper towel lined box. This keeps them moisture free for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Hmmm berry-licious!
