How to Preserve Fruit & Vegetables in a Zipper Bag

There’s a simple joy in the snap of leafy greens or the crunch of raw carrots fresh from the store. But keeping those perishables fresh once you get them home can be a real challenge. No one likes coming home to find the spinach for tonight’s dinner spoiled and leaking all over the fridge. It’s not good for dinner, it’s not good for your fridge and it’s not good for your sanity. Plus it’s a total pain to keep repurchasing produce only to have it spoil. 

Keeping your food fresh is the best way to enjoy your food for longer and one such way to do it is by storing them in zip lock bags. This storage bag is probably one of the most common food storage bags and can be used to store just about anything like vegetables, fruits, meat, milk, snacks, and leftover food in the fridge and freezer. Additionally, it keeps our freezer and fridge shelves neat and well-organized. Follow these zipper bag storage tips to maximize the zipper bag’s ability to keep vegetables fresh.
