What is the best way to store fruit?
- Most fresh fruit, including apples, berries and grapes, will last longer if kept in their original packaging and stored in the crisper of your fridge.
- Berries can last in the fridge for about a week.
- Plastic bags with tiny vents (openings) help keep fruit fresh longer by releasing moisture.
Where should fruit be stored in a small kitchen? You can also look for woven hanging baskets meant for plants, but you can store your fruit in them instead. Multi-level baskets or trays that stand on the kitchen counter are another good option for getting the most out of a small area while staying organized. Use one basket for fruit and another for vegetables.
How do you organize fruit on the counter? Very perishable, store unwashed and dry, in shallow container for good air circulation. Spoil quickly at room temperature. Can also be stored at room temperature for about a week. Store unwashed and dry, in perforated bag for good air circulation.
Should you store fruit in glass or plastic containers? For most fruits and veggies I would recommend: Put a half paper towel in the bottom of the jar before filling with produce. Healthier for you! Glass is inert, so you won’t ingest chemicals like those in plastic, BPA or otherwise, which are endocrine disrupters with an estrogenic effect.
