How to Keep Food Fresh Naturally


How many times have we brought food just to forget about it, only to recall that we brought it after it started to smell bad? You are unable to stop this, but you may take steps to extend the shelf life of your food and maintain its quality over time.

There are a lot of things that you can do, such as periodically cleaning your refrigerator and checking the food that you store in there, as well as the food that you keep in your cabinets or anyplace else. However, it is not just a matter of verifying them. This will not prevent anything from happening. You will accomplish nothing by doing this other than tossing away food things before they make the whole kitchen smell bad. Therefore, what can you do to ensure that the meal remains edible?

A Useful Checklist of Suggestions to Ensure That Food Is Both Cleaner and Fresher:
1) Sprinkle some cloves over the marble surface of your kitchen and surrounding it. Additionally, sprinkle some cloves on the top of the sink cabinet.
Ants avoid cloves because they smell them.

2) Put some bay leaves inside your bags of dough, rice, and any other food that insects like to eat. Insects are attracted to these foods.
Insects and other pests like lice are deterred from food items when bay leaves are used. By inserting bay leaves into the packages, we eliminate any potential habitat for insects that may have been there. It is imperative that you do not forget to replace the bay leaves once every three months.

3) Put a potato cut in half in the refrigerator to chill.
The fragrance of whatever is being cooked or eaten will be taken up by the half potato. This includes any unpleasant odors. It is important to remember to switch out the potato after every three days if you want this to be successful.

4) When storing eggs, make sure the pointy end is facing down.
Eggs stay fresher for a longer amount of time if they are stored with the pointed end facing down.

5) Add a few sugar cubes to the container that you use to hold American cheese.
When American cheese is stored with two or three cubes of sugar in an airtight container, the sugar is able to absorb any moisture that may be present, so preventing the cheese from spoiling.

6) Never put tomatoes and cucumbers in the same drawer while you're storing them.
Tomatoes release gases that cause cucumbers to decay more quickly; thus, you should store tomatoes and cucumbers in separate containers.

7) Do not keep apples in the same area where you keep the other fresh fruits and vegetables.
Apples produce gases that accelerate the rotting process in other fruits and vegetables.

8) Place apple slices or raw potato cubes in the jar or bread chamber of the toaster.
If you combine the bread with a few slices of raw potatoes or apples, the bread will stay fresh for a much longer period of time than it would otherwise.

9) Place the radish in a container and add some water to the container.
If you want to maintain the radish's crispness and freshness for an extended period of time, you should store it in a container that also contains water. In the same vein, if the radishes have become shriveled, you should put them in a jar filled with cold water. The radishes will regain their former glory after they are soaked in water.

In this article, I have just covered a few of the more actionable steps that you need to take to guarantee that the food that you and your family eat stays flavorful and fresh for as long as possible.
