Simple Ways to Make Your Food Last Longer

You search through your fridge to find the fresh products you bought a week ago but you end up finding rotten and wilted produce. Luckily there are simple ways to make your fresh products last longer. How? Keep reading!

Herbs

Fresh herbs don’t last long, even if we keep them in the fridge. But there are 2 ways you can keep them fresh for longer.

  • Treat them like flowers. Fill a glass with water and dip the herbs in the water. Now store them in the fridge. With this, you will get 3 to 4 more days out of your fresh herbs.
  • If you want to keep your herbs fresh for more than 4 days, simply infused them in butter. Chop or use larger sprigs of herbs and place them in an ice tray. Pour melted butter to just cover them and freeze the tray. Now you won’t end up throwing away wilted herbs.

Cabbage

The biggest mistake you can make with cabbage is keeping it in a plastic bag. Keep the cabbage in the drawer in the fridge, as it is, and not in a plastic bag. This way it will even stay crispy and fresh for up to 2 weeks.

Spinach

Both lettuce and spinach need to be washed before storing. Wash them with cold water and place them in glass bowls layered with paper towels. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the fridge. They will even be perfectly crispy for salads and the spinach will be ready to use for any dish you want

Cheese

Plastic wrap is the enemy for cheese products and the solution is wax paper. Once opened, wrap the cheese in wax or parchment paper and then place it in a plastic bag. Now, your cheese won’t spoil as fast as before.

Bread

Plastic cases, wraps, and bags are the worst options for storing bread. The best way is to wrap it with a clean kitchen towel and store it in a breadbox or microwave. It not only hinders the process of forming mold, but it will help it stay soft too.
