Now that many of us are focused on making the most of every piece of food on hand, it’s more crucial than ever to know the right way to store it. With the right tools and guidance, you can keep your organic fruits and veggies fresher, longer between each Misfits Market box.
Below, learn which fruits and veggies should be enjoyed first and which others have more mileage with proper storage.
