Keep Food From Spoiling

The abundance of food inevitably leads to spoiled leftovers. Living in difficult times should make us doubly aware on ways to maximize and prevent food from spoiling. Here are a few tips:

Move the fruit bowl.
Fruits spoil much faster in warmer temperatures and when they are exposed to heat. If you want fruit to stay fresh longer, keep it away from the sun and away from indirect heat.

Bag it.
Veggies, fruits and other perishables stay fresh longer when kept in thick paper bags. This is because paper bags keep the temperature stable and help ward off insects and sunlight.

Refrigerate.
The process of spoilage slows down when perishables are kept in the refrigerator. Also, veggies and fruits (with some exceptions) that are refrigerated may become firmer and more resistant to bruising.

Dunk in water.
Some veggies, fruits and other food items shrink or dry out as time passes. Revive them by placing them in water before using.

Vacuum packing.
Tear out vacuum packing in perishables only when you need to use them. This will extend their shelf life and keep them from spoiling immediately.
