This is such a fun article!  We are going to post some of our favorite helpful tips from the article below on how to preserve your food.  For the rest of the tips and more click HERE


USE VINEGAR SOLUTION TO MAKE YOUR BERRIES LAST LONGER
Prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Swirl the berries around in the mixture, drain, rinse, and put them in the fridge. The solution is diluted enough that you won’t taste the vinegar. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.




FREEZE GREEN ONIONS IN A PLASTIC BOTTLE
Make sure the green onions are completely dry before storing or they’ll get freezer burn. Just take them out and add them to your food as needed! Easy as that.




STORE POTATOES WITH APPLES TO KEEP THEM FROM SPROUTING

STORE AN APPLE INSIDE A BAG OF POTATOES TO KEEP THE POTATOES FROM SPROUTING




ADD A DAB OF BUTTER TO THE CUT SIDE OF CHEESE TO KEEP IT FROM DRYING OUT






WRAP THE CROWN OF A BUNCH OF BANANAS WITH PLASTIC WRAP
They’ll keep for 3-5 days longer than usual, which is especially helpful if you eat organic bananas. Bananas also produce more ethelyne gas than any other fruit, so keep them isolated on the counter.
