Proper Storage of Organic Items This Fall Season
As the weather starts to cool down, it’s time to start thinking about how you will store your fruits and vegetables. Luckily, there are a few simple tips that can help keep your organic items fresh all season long. By following these tips, you’ll be able to enjoy delicious, fresh produce all autumn long!
One of the best ways to store fruits and vegetables is in a cool, dark place. A basement or root cellar is ideal, but if you don’t have either of those, a cool pantry or closet will also do the trick. Just make sure that whatever space you choose is well-ventilated and free of insects.
If you’re storing herbs, it’s best to keep them in a dry, dark place as well. An airtight container placed in a cupboard or pantry is ideal. If you’re storing leafy greens, however, you’ll want to keep them in a moist environment – like the crisper drawer of your refrigerator.
When it comes to storing root vegetables, the key is to keep them dry. A root cellar is a perfect place for this, but you can also store them in a cool, dark place like a basement or closet. Just make sure to keep them away from any source of heat, as this will cause them to spoil quickly.
Finally, if you’re storing fruits and vegetables that are still on the vine, it’s best to keep them in a cool, dark place as well. Again, a root cellar is ideal, but a cool pantry or closet will also work. Just be sure to check on your produce regularly and don’t let it get too ripe – otherwise it may start to rot.
By following these simple tips, you can easily store your organic fruits and vegetables all autumn long. Enjoy the bounty of the season and rest assured that your produce will stay fresh all season long!
Happy autumnal eating!
