Store Food Longer, Safer
Bachelors – those of us who cook often keep a good bit of leftovers in the fridge, which can be a horribly gross clean-up later when it comes time to glean expired food from the fridge to throw away.
Food, especially produce, releases ethylene gas as it loses freshness after harvesting or picking. This gas contributes to food rotting or ripening and eventually, going bad.
Even storing your food in plastic bags that are kept air-tight is not enough. The best way to keep these foods fresh is to put them in Debbie Meyer “Green Bags” – bags that remove this gas as it is produced by the food, and keep your food longer. The Green Bag can dramatically increase the life of both food and flowers.
