I love buying fresh produce, especially at this time of year when there is so much. But it’s sometimes a challenge to use it all up before it goes bad. Here’s an article with some good suggestions on choosing and storing produce once you get it home. A couple of notes from me: overripe bananas can be frozen and used later for smoothies and baking; and cherry or grape tomatoes can be stored in the fridge. They might lose a little flavor, but because they’re so small, you’re less likely to notice any mealiness (I haven’t yet) and they last quite a bit longer (especially since I buy organic tomatoes and they mold quickly in the Southern California heat).
