Want more flavor and a longer lifespan for your groceries? Use these storage tips.
Buying groceries is a hassle, and it always seems to be more expensive than you’d like. It’s a shame when groceries go bad, forcing you to toss out food that was perfectly good just days before.
If you want to get the most out of your latest shop, use these tips for storing your groceries for maximal flavor and lifespan!
If you pop your apples in the drawer of your refrigerator, they’ll last 3 weeks.
You have four days to eat your avocados once they’re ripe if you store them on your fridge shelf. If you ate half of one, squeeze lemon juice on it, wrap it in plastic, and store for up to a day on your refrigerator shelf.
Tomatoes, you might be surprised to learn, actually do their best completely exposed to the air. Leave them unwrapped on your countertop for up to five days.
Bread & Cheese
A loaf of bread can keep in the freezer in a sealed bag for 3 months! If you don’t like your bread so chilly, you can also keep it on the counter in a sealed bag for 3 days.
Store your semi-hard cheese in (you guessed it!) the cheese drawer wrapped in parchment, then plastic, for up to 2 weeks. Soft cheese gets the same treatment, and will last 1-2 weeks.
Grabbed a carton without an expiration date? Your eggs will last two weeks.
Raw meat will keep in its original packaging in your fridge for 2 days or can be frozen in a sealed bag for 3 to 6 months.
