5 Ways to Make Food Last Longer

We found a huge list online of weird ways you can make food last longer.  We’d seen most of them before, but here are five that are pretty good.

  1. Use cooking spray on leftover guacamole. Apparently it keeps it from turning brown better than lemon juice.  You can also do it with avocados.
  1. Don’t store potatoes and onions together. Onions release a gas that can make potatoes sprout faster.  But storing potatoes with APPLES can actually PREVENT them from sprouting.
  1. Wrap the stems of your bananas with plastic wrap. Do it while they’re still together in a bunch.  They should stay ripe three to five days longer, especially if they’re organic.
  1. Put a paper towel in with extra salad. Then cover the bowl with plastic wrap.  The towel sucks up some of the moisture, so the lettuce stays crisp.
  1. Clean your refrigerator. Once something goes bad in there, it can leave mold behind.  And that can make OTHER things go bad.
