Lovely article at  that lists 6 spot on ways to keep the fruits and vegetables fresher for longer in your kitchen. I am always talking 

  • Give your berries a hot bath: …before storing them to keep them from going fuzzy!
  • Keep tomatoes OUT of the refrigerator: the fridge drains your tomatoes of their flavor and texture…
  • Wrap your leafy greens: Those greens wilt, so wrap them with a paper towel, then put it a plastic bag for freshness…
  • Refresh lettuce and herms with an ice bath: “place the lettuce leaves or herbs in a large bowl of ice water and shake the greens around a bit to revive them  a minute or two…”
  • Freeze your fruits and veggies: You’d be surprised at the veggies you can keep fresh this way – You can freeze items such as bell peppers, green beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, onions, etc.
  • Refrigerate ripened bananas: Surprise! the banana might turn black, but the inside will stay fresh and edible.
