Veg storage

Hi,

Could anyone tell me what is the best way to store fruit and veg whilst in Turkey.

We buy kilos and kilos of everything on market days, but within a few days it has died a death.

Wondered if it's best to store in a cool airey room (thats a challenge) or just cram the fridge.

How do you full time residents store the stuff ??

Regards

Yasmin

Ooooh
Well one way round the problem is not to buy kilos and kilos of the stuff! Apart from potatos and onions everything else should be kept in the fridge. Carrots do not seem to last a long time here (probably because they have not been frosted or hardened!) but apart from that everything else seems to have a much longer life span than in the UK. I tend to buy fresh veggies once a week from the market, using my local shop to stock up on anything we seem to have eaten!

Re: Veg storage

Hi Yasmin,

I live here fulltime and we go every Sat. to the pazaar and stock up on fresh veggies and fruits. We store ours in the fridge and as long as they are fresh they last the week with a few exceptions such as strawberries.(when they were in season)

Re: Veg storage

When you bring the stuff home, prepare it for cooking and put it in a container of water, then leave it in the fridge. It tends to keep a few days longer that way. It also seems to stop the carrots from rotting so quickly.

Green beans can be frozen. Just top and tail them and put straight in the freezer. Don't wash or blanch them 'cos the water can make them mushy when they de-frost.

I think I've just had a Galloping Gourmet moment !

Heheeee a Galloping Gourmet moment
Wasn't the strange guys name Graham? Yes the beans can be top n tailed and free frozen KKOB but as they are so cheap here,it hardly seems to be worthwhile The Jaspers really do pee me off though because whatever I do to them they never keep for more than a week. I have even been reduced to buying just six for a weeks worth of Coleslaw and still one little bugga decides to end it all. Oooh I think I may buy a karnabarha this week and freeze it in florets. Any recipe ideas Mr Gourmet?

Re: Veg storage

İ disagree the beans ALL types blanch and freeze well never mushy remember to plunge in boiling water bring back to boil then strain before plunging into ice cold water before packing into containers to stop the cooking process! Use the same water for several types of veg then use the water as stock for soupğs or casseroles.... Fruits tend to be a tad more technical but they never last long enough in my fridge to go off as İ devour them within the shortest time...lol
