Winter vegetable storage tips

March 10, 2011 by General Administrator

Potatoes
– need to be kept in the dark to prevent green patches forming, which are toxic when eaten raw
– best kept in a cloth or paper bag in a cool, dry place

Dry alliums – i.e. onions/garlic
– best kept in a paper or cloth bag
– best kept in a cool, dry place, such as a cupboard or garage

Uncut squash
– store in a moderate temperature

Salad and other leaves
– best kept in a plastic bag in the fridge or very cool place such as the garage

Everything else – carrots and other roots, leeks, cut squash
– as a general rule keep in plastic to preserve humidity or paper/cloth to reduce
– they all need somewhere cool to cold
