FRUIT FLIES?

But all I have out are two yellow delicious apples that are nowhere NEAR rotten!!! Damn fruit flies.

Today is a HUGE day of cleaning, so I will get you in the end fruit flies…OH YES I WILL.

Mark got up to go to Rochester this morning for class and to work later tonight and I’m working at home. I plan on cleaning…everything in sight, walking to the farmers market, grabbing a bite for lunch in the Village and spending the rest of the day blogging, reading and writing. Oh, and cooking. I still need to make that Barley Roasted Vegetable dish, if the veggies are still good in my fridge, which brings me to this topic.

To Refrigerate or Not: That is The Question from FitSugar

According to VegetarianTimes.com, some fruits emit ethylene, an odorless, colorless gas that speeds ripening and can lead to the premature decay of nearby ethylene-sensitive vegetables. So the first trick to keeping produce fresh is to separate produce that emits ethylene from produce that’s sensitive to it and know which to refrigerate and which not to refrigerate.

REFRIGERATE these gas releasers
Apples
Apricots
Cantaloupe
Figs
Honeydew

DON’T REFRIGERATE these gas releasers
Avocados
Bananas, unripe
Nectarines
Peaches
Pears
Plums
Tomatoes

OOPS! APPLES SHOULD BE REFRIGERATED, hence the little teeny flies. Now I know, and you do too. Happy Saturday everyone!


Whatcha talkin' bout Willis?
