How to Keep Your Fruit and Vegetables Fresh for Longer
Do you find that the fruit, vegetables and meat that you buy just don’t seem to last as long as they should, even though you put them in the fridge as soon as you get home from the supermarket? Unfortunately, not all fridges are created equal, but investing in a new model that incorporates special design features to extend the life of your food will ensure that you have less waste. However, if this isn’t an option, there are other ways to keep your fruit and vegetables fresher for longer. Some tips for keeping your fruit and vegetables and meat and dairy products lasting longer is using things like the bio fresh drawer which comes in Liebherr refrigerators. A bio fresh drawer is a bit different from your normal crisper. It is set at just above zero degrees and you can control the humidity. So you can keep things as dry as you want or you can let in a little bit of moisture. Being at just above zero degrees and having control over humidity, you can have your fruit and vegetables last a lot longer than in a traditional crisper where you may not have that control. Obviously it's not set at just above zero degrees like in a Liebherr bio fresh drawer.
When you're buying fresh groceries and fresh meat from the butcher, they will last significantly longer than in a normal crisper drawer. So you won't have to go grocery shopping as frequently. If you're one of those people who like to go just on a Sunday afternoon and get everything done, you can do that. You can grab everything you want if you've planned out your week’s meals for example, put it all in your bio fresh drawer and you know it will still be fresh at the end of the week. Even if you don’t have a Liebherr refrigerator, there are ways that you can help to preserve the life of your produce. First, you’ll want to keep ripe and unripe items separate from each other, otherwise the unripe items will ripen quicker than normal. You should also ensure that all items have some breathing space, and don’t stack produce too tightly in the crisper drawers. Plastic bags usually cause your food to decay faster, so remove these before placing your food in the fridge. Lastly, check that your fridge is running at an optimum temperature, and that it’s regularly maintained and kept clean.
