Do you ever buy produce and then it goes bad before you get to it? We all should run to our local farmers market or grocery store every 2 to 3 days to insure that our produce is fresh. It's just too hard sometimes to get to the store that often. Here's a tip to insure your produce doesn't go bad too quickly, to make it easy for soups, casseroles, pies, etc. and to make sure you have items that later on that might not be in season.
Wash vegetables or fruit. Cut, dice or slice. Store in Tupperware containers or freezer Ziploc bags. Remove as much air as possible by squeezing it out. Pat to flatten on countertop. Label the month and year as well as contents. Store in freezer until ready to use.
