This simple trick will keep your fruit fresh for much longer
Fruit is healthy and tasty. Most fruits are full of vitamin C, fibres and all kinds of other vitamins and minerals that are good for you. Plus, thanks to the natural sugars you derive a lot of energy from it. The best snack for when you’re feeling peckish is simply an apple, orange or another piece of delicious fruit. But it’s a pity that it goes bad so quickly… Luckily, we’ve got a handy trick that will keep your fruits fresh for much longer!
This way, fruit won’t go bad as quickly.
The recommended daily allowance of fruit is two pieces. The trouble is, fruit spoils pretty quickly because it’s fresh food. And it’s best to keep fruit outside of the fridge since it will lose its flavour otherwise. Because of this, you’re forced to throw away fruit way more often than you want. It’s difficult to estimate how long pears and apples will stay fresh exactly. Especially with warm weather, food will spoil more quickly. You don’t want to bite into a mouldy pear and it’s also a waste of money. Luckily, we’ve got a simple trick that will help you keep fruit fresh for twice as long. And you don’t need any chemical preservatives.
Of course, you need to rinse fruit before you eat it. But a lot of people immediately rinse the entire bowl of strawberries, blueberries or raspberries, only to eat just a couple of them. The rest goes back into the fridge still wet. Don’t do this! The moisture causes the fruit to get mouldy more quickly. Always dry your fruit before putting it in the fridge.
Did you buy a whole bunch of apples? Most apples will keep for at least a week, but you can keep them even longer than that! Wrap each apple in its own paper towel and carefully place them in the vegetable drawer of your fridge. Make sure you don’t pull open the drawer too wildly, as this will cause the apples to develop soft, brown spots and to rot eventually. If you keep your apples in the fridge, they will stay nice and fresh and won’t develop that mealy consistency.
