The Great 'how do you stop fruit and veg rotting' Hunt



  • I don't know where Meadows gets her bags/containers but I have similar potato and onion bags (black lined) bought from Poundland and they really do keep the contents fresher for longer. For £1 I wasn't expecting miracles but they really do work. I have never seen the banana bags and would like to know where to get those - bananas are just about the worst fruit to keep fresh. I hate them when they turn brown speckled! My DD hangs hers off a banana stand but it doesn't seem to make them last any longer.

    I keep bananas in the drawer in the fridge, well wrapped in several sheets of newspaper. They keep for at least 7/10 days, taking out one each day to eat. The outside skin does go a little brown after a few days but the bananas are still quite firm and unblemished inside.
