Would you like to hear something about storing your food items?
For storing ginger:
When you store ginger normally in the fridge, you can find them shrunk after few days of storage.Here is the way to give your ginger longer life.Once you get the ginger from store, peel off the skin and store in the freezer in a zip lock bag.This tip was offered by Rachael Ray (Food Network).It really works.Whenever you want to use ginger, use a grater or thaw for a while and chop ’em.
For Storing green chilies:
Usually store bought green chilies are with the stalk, remove them before storage.Better remove any moisture, throw the chilies on the kitchen towel and pat them dry.You can store in a zip lock bag with a dry kitchen tissue inside the bag to absorb any left over moisture.You can store in freezer for long time storage.It remains fresh.
- When you get coconut from store, grate them and store it in a container in the freezer.Freezer give longer shelf life rather than fridge.
- You may store curry powders (if you have bulk amount to store) also in freezer for longer shelf life.
- Nuts like cashew, pistachio,peanut etc develop a bad oily smell as days pass by.But when you store them in freezer it remains fresh for long time.
- Remove leaves from beet or carrot and pat them dry before storing.
Any veggies that you buy from market, clean the same day , pat them dry using kitchen towel before storing.This helps you save time when you cook later.
Same with Cilantro spread on the kitchen towel to dry.Remove any decayed stems before storing.
