Apples

Freshness Tips

If Apples are too firm or sour when purchased, leave out at room temperature to ripen for 1-3 days, and once ripen you can refrigerate in a plastic bag. Doing so will keep them fresh for 3-4 weeks.

Apples can keep up to 6 months or more if they can be stored in an area where the temperature is between 30-40 degrees with high humidity.

Freezer storage for Apples is similar to Peaches. Wash, peel, core and slice apples. Coat with a solution made of 1/2 teaspoon of ascorbic acid (found at a vitamin store) and 6 tablespoons of cold water to prevent darkening. Place in a covered airtight container or freezer bags.

   

Basil

Freshness Tips

Put the newly cut stems in water in a vase-like jar or glass covered with an inverted plastic bag at cool room temperature and away from direct sunlight.

The bag goes over the jar/glass in which you've placed the Basil, and the Basil's stems sit in the water. Cut the stems a half inch from the bottom before putting them in water as that makes it easier for them to take water.

By maintaining high humidity, the bag keeps the leaves from wilting.

   

Beans (Green or Yellow)

Freshness Tips

Refrigerate in a plastic bag where they can remain fresh for 3-5 days. Do not wash until ready to use. To freeze, wash and remove ends. Leave whole or cut into pieces, and blanch (plunge into boiling water) for 3 minutes and chill in cold water. Drain off excess moisture and package in freezer bags.

   

Beets

Freshness Tips

You can store Beets in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks, but do not wash before refrigerating. The Beet Greens can last about 3-5 days with the same type of care To freeze, wash the Beets and cook until tender. Cool then peel the Beets and cut into slices or cubes. Place them in covered airtight containers or freezer bags.
