Storing Tips

Store Well Waste Less - Raspberries and Blackberries

■ Refrigerate berries in a covered shallow container. Use raspberries within 1 to 3 days; blackberries within 3 to 5 days.

■ Rinse berries under cool running water just before using. Moisture during storage speeds spoilage.

Store Well Waste Less - Radishes

■ Radishes do not store well with the leafy tops left on. Cut them off before storing.

■ Store radishes in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Put them unwrapped in the produce drawer of your refrigerator, or in an open plastic bag or bowl to let air in.

Store Well Waste Less - Cauliflower

■ Refrigerate cauliflower stem side down in a loose bag or in the store wrapper for 1 to 2 weeks.

■ Pre-cut cauliflower (from the store or cut at home) loses freshness faster; use in 2 to 3 days.

■ Rinse cauliflower under running water just before using. Trim away brown spots.
