When I make a salad just for my­self, I end up with a lot of cut fruits and veg­eta­bles like pep­pers, onions and ap­ples. They don’t seem to last long in the fridge so of­ten end up go­ing to waste. What is the best way to store them?

Friday - - Society Living Leisure -

All you need is a clean and dry pa­per towel and a zi­plock bag.

Just lightly wrap the cut-up vegetable or fruit with the pa­per towel and place it in the zi­plock bag. Seal the bag, then place in the re­frig­er­a­tor.

Don’t freeze left­over fruit or veg­eta­bles as that will de­stroy the nu­tri­tional value of the pro­duce when you thaw it.

This tech­nique should keep your cut-up fruit and veg­eta­bles fresh for two to three days.
