Storage

Properly Store Apples

I will properly store apples by keeping them on the counter for up to 7 days and then moving them to the refrigerator.I will keep them away from bananas and avocados, since those speed ripening. I will properly store 10 apples.

    It’s been fun planning around food I don’t normally buy but grow instead.  New kitchen gadgets help a lot too!
