Avoid fruit/vegetable spoilage!!!

To increase the life of salads in bags, rinse leaves, drain and put into a shallow container. Drape a piece of damp kitchen paper over, cover and chill. Remove herbs from packaging and roll tightly in damp kitchen paper and then cling film. Don't use foil to wrap acidic foods such as sliced tomato, citrus fruit or cabbage. The aluminum will affect the taste. Mangoes, avocados and bananas are some of the fruits that do not benefit from being refrigerated. Fruits such as apples, peaches and pears give off a natural gas that causes other fruit and veg to ripen more quickly. Carrot, broccolli, cauliflower, cabbage and lettuce are affected so they should be stored separately.
