Vegetable and Fruit Tips
Prevent discoloration of green leafy vegetables: Add a pinch of
common salt and sugar to the cooking vegetable so as to avoid
discoloration of green leafy vegetables.
Onion peeling without crying: Peel onions under water to avoid
“crying”. Another option is to refrigerate onions before cutting.
Keep green leafy vegetables fresh for longer time: Wrap green leafy
vegetables in a newspaper before putting in the vegetable bag or
tray. This will keep them fresh much longer.
Stop potatoes from rotting: Potatoes rot quickly if stored near
onions. To prevent potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag
with the potatoes.
Keep chillies fresh for a longer time: While storing green chilies,
remove the stems.
