Produce Storage Tips

Love fresh, organic produce but hate when it shrivels & wilts before you can use it? Try these tricks to keep your fruits & vegetables fresh longer. Let’s start with these 6 tips: Store fruits & vegetables separately. Fruits like bananas & melons emit the ripening hormone ethylene as a gas, which can speed spoilage of other items. Chop tops. Removing carrots & beet tops helps these veggies retain nutrients & stay fresh longer. Don’t toss beet greens—cook ’em like chard! Let veggies breathe. Store them in reusable mesh bags or unsealed plastic bags. Wait to wash most produce until you’re ready to eat it. Dampness can promote spoilage. Once you’ve cut it, refrigerate it.

6 Tips for Greener Grilling

6 Tips for Greener Grilling

Before firing up your grill for a cookout, check out these simple—and surprising!—ways to lessen your eco-impact and barbecue healthier. Did you know gas beats charcoal every time? Or that besides making meat delicious, marinades can be good for you, too? With a little planning, you can grill safer, healthier, and greener. 1. Go gas, chuck charcoal.
