Produce Guides/Storage

mabziegurl | Jul 27, 2006 03:26 AM

I am so confused as to how to store produce. My mom stores everything in its plastic bag in the crisper, but I'm sure there's some stuff that stores better some other way. I bought a great book, Field Guide to Produce, and learned a lot about produce, but I'm starting to see some contradictions, etc.

Is there a great reference online that may help?

Its extremely hot right now, like 100` inside (my apartment is a sauna) so I tend to stick everything in the fridge. My mom stores lemons for months, why do my lemons start rotting after a week! I read to wrap mushrooms in paper towels and store in the fridge, they got wrinkly after a day. I can't figure it out! I live by myself so I don't use much and throw a lot of stuff away because it goes bad so quick. (I also get extremely excited at the grocery store if I see deals, and I do go to the store like 2-3 times a week, I just have a little shopping addiction....)
