How to prolong the life of certain foods

How many times have you had your fruit rotten in a bowl before you could eat it? Here are a few little tricks on how to give certain foods to stay fresh longer.


We mostly keep apples at room temperature in bowls which is completely wrong. To keep your apples fresh longer, store them in the refrigerator, packed in plastic bags. Apples prepared this way can stay fresh for up to six weeks, but be careful if they are all healthy, because one rotten apple can spoil all the others.


Asparagus is very delicate and easily loses its taste, so it is best to prepare it immediately after purchase. If you really have to keep them for later, wrap the stems in paper napkins and put them in the coldest part of the refrigerator.


Did you know that an avocado can stand for an incredible three to six months on a tree without rotting and start rotting only after it is harvested? After the avocado is harvested, it can rot in two or three days, so it is best to consume it as soon as you buy it and do not buy larger quantities.

Peeled avocados will keep their freshness longer if you sprinkle them with lemon juice or white wine vinegar.


Bananas can stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to five days. Although the cold air from the refrigerator can make the banana peel brown, the fruit will stay fresh.


Before you store fresh beans, to prolong their freshness, be sure to wash them, drain them, wrap them in a paper napkin and store them in the coldest part of the refrigerator for up to five days. Do not cut the ends until ready.


Beet leaves are used very little, which is very wrong, because it is full of nutrients and healthy substances. Use it a day or two after picking because it withers very quickly. As for the root itself, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, provided that you cut the top to a centimeter in length.

Berry fruit

As soon as you bring home the berries, the first thing you need to do is remove all the unhealthy and rotten fruits, and then put it in a shallow bowl lined with paper towels. Cover the fruit with napkins that will absorb all the excess moisture, and then cover the bowl with plastic wrap.

In this way, the berry fruit can be fresh for up to a week.

Before you store the carrot in the refrigerator, be sure to cut the leaves and green stems because they can “capture” all the nutrients and moisture from the roots. Store the carrots in plastic bags and this way it can last up to two weeks.
