How to Store Produce

There’s nothing worse than opening your produce drawer and finding a wilting, rubbery, stalk of something that used to be celery. We’ve all done it, and now more than ever, we want to be conscious of how much food we waste. And besides, who likes throwing money down the compost bin?!

The Produce Storage Guide is a great reference for storing your produce, so it will stay fresh and nutritious as long as possible for you. Aside from overall good practices, there is a listing of over 80 fruits and vegetables with specific instructions on how to best store each. There is also a ripeness guide listing what produce should be eaten first and what keeps longer.

No more wilted watercress!

Food is Changing – It’s Great To Keep Up

Are you interested in learning more about people who produce and care about food and, in turn, are helping to transform the environment in which our food is grown? How about understanding the connections and collaborations that form in order to improve the way we eat?

The Change Food Video Library is a comprehensive collection of the best short length videos covering both problems and solutions to food and farming today. It includes talks from Change Food, The Real Food Media Project, TED, TEDxManhattan and other TEDx events.

The videos are supplemented with online educational information such as links to other sites, materials to be used for discussion, actions and campaigns, and links to additional reading.

Just a quick glance led me to find videos on all sorts of interesting topics, such as “What role do chefs play in the future of good food?” Or, “How can we feed more people by addressing food waste?” And, “Why is organic food so *#@! expensive”?

An excellent resource, the Change Food Video Library presents quality content that is accurate and up to date – and maybe best of all, located in one easily accessible place.

You don’t have to be a teacher, lecturer or event organizer to appreciate this library – just someone with a desire to know more about the changing world of food today.
