5 Hacks For Storing Fruit
Wrap banana stems with plastic wrap to help them not ripen as quickly.
Did you know you can freeze bananas? I place brown or spotted bananas in the freezer and always have ripe bananas for baking. See banana bread recipe below.
Remove all bruised or spotted apples and store on the counter (eat within one or two days).
Store other apples in the crisper drawer in the fridge (or the coldest spot). Consider throwing a wet paper towel over the top they will last even longer.
Store on the counter out of the sunlight. They will last about a week.
For longer lasting lemons store them in the fridge in an airtight ziplock bag in the crisper drawer (slide the humidity level all the way to the left or to the lowest setting) they will last for up to four weeks.
You can also store lime wedges or slices for about a week in a plastic bag. Lime juice is good even longer. You can store lime juice for four months in the freezer.
