So now, I am FridgeSmart! After today’s “class”, you can be FridgeSmart too!
Silly, I know. But throwing good greens ($$$) down the disposal or even into the compost pile is NOT the least bit funny!
Let me ask you a question. What are the challenges of keeping fresh fruit and vegetables?
1. They go bad before you can use them up? No one likes that slime monster in the crisper drawer!
2. Wasting money!
3. Storing them in those environmentally harmful plastic bags?
4. Wasting money!
5. Storing some produce items together can hasten spoilage?
6. Wasting money!
7. You’re eating organic produce for your health. But without the waxes, sprays & potions used to preserve them, your produce has “gone bad” in a flash?
8. Did I mention wasting money?
Tupperware’s FridgeSmart is the SOLUTION!
Look closely, and you'll see 2 little white buttons on the front of the container. Those are the ACE Vents. ACE = Atmosphere Controlled Environment. By setting the vents, you can control the flow of oxygen in and carbon dioxide and other gases out of the container. You see, even though produce has been harvested, it continues to "breathe". And wouldn't you know it? The different types of produce can require a different environment for optimal storage! The ACE vents allow you to provide that!
I kept a head of broccoli for 6 weeks in the large round container...then had it for dinner with no sign that it had been hangin' out in the refrigerator so long!
The container even has a storage chart integrated into the side of the container!
Below are some of the features and benefits of the FridgeSmart containers.
Hint: Do not wash produce before storing, only right before use. Different produce requiring the same ACE configuration may be stored in the same container. Be sure to place in lower containers middle-to-bottom of the fridge to avoid freezing.
Now you've had a brief intro to FridgeSmart. Tomorrow, we'll talk about Tupperware as the GREEN choice and show some price comparisons. I think you'll be surprised!
I've got a couple of recipes to share also!
