Don’t wash your vegetables before storing them- added water or perspiration will grow bacteria on the produce. Vegetables like beets and carrots should be stored in a plastic bag with perforated holes, allowing just the right amount of air.

If you don’t plan on eating corn on the cob the day you buy it, blanch it and store in a plastic bag. Otherwise, plan on eating it the same day for the best quality.

Keep any fruit separate from vegetables in storage bins- the ethylene gas can quicken the ripening process and cause the veggies to spoil.

Vegetables like mushroom and okra need to be kept in a paper bag or in the cardboard box they come in- unwrap the plastic, and cover loosely with a paper towel.

Follow these easy steps to keep your veggies at their best quality and freshness!
