When you bring in your shopping, where is the best place to store your vegetables to get the most out of them? Depending on whether you refrigerate your vegetables or store them in the cupboard, you can make your vegetables last much longer, or shorter. It’s important to make sure that you store vegetables in the right place.
How To Store Vegetables At Home
How you store veg has a major impact on their taste and texture when you serve them. Almost everything can be stored in the refrigerator except for tomatoes and potatoes. These items should be kept in a cool, dry area, but will experience strange changes if kept at too cold a temperature. Garlic and onions should also be kept at room temperature in a well-ventilated area.
If you have too much of a good thing, nearly all vegetables can be stored in the freezer. Freeze everything in small pieces in freezer bags or airtight containers. This will allow you to only take out what you need, when you need it.
