Summer is rolling along and with it, an avalanche of summer produce that’s tumbling in thick and fast. Are you having a hard time keeping up with it already? Are your fruits and veggies spoiling faster than you can eat them?
Many of us waste lots of food—and money—because we don’t know how to properly store our produce once we get it home. We tend to throw it all in the fridge and forget about it. Then we come across it five days later and our greens are getting slimy, the cucumbers are shriveling, the tomatoes look good but taste terrible, the nectarines are growing little fur coats, and we have a sinking feeling that our beautiful food is heading straight for the garbage pail—yet again.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
I’m happy to announce that I’ve created a new 66-page guide to address these very problems. It’s in the Bag—or Not! helps you properly select, store, trim, and clean 90 different types of fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Not all produce can be treated alike, and much of it spoils faster than you might suspect. Keeping these beauties fresher longer isn’t hard—it often takes just a few minutes to properly prep them for later enjoyment, and this guide helps you do it quickly and easily. Beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs that help you accurately identify each crop, it also contains dozens of handy safety, cooking, and ripening tips.
Did you know, for instance, that fresh tomatoes and peaches should never be put in the fridge? That nibbling on raw shell beans can poison you? That the best way to keep herbs fresh is to treat them like cut flowers? That potatoes and onions should not be stored together?
You’ll discover all this and much more in It’s in the Bag—or Not! And if you like what you see and want more, check out my other book, Bounty from the Box: The CSA Farm Cookbook, which contains a wealth of comprehensive cooking information and over 360 delicious recipes for using all of those yummy fruits and vegetables!
