Most of the food-related articles on this site are about long-term food storage. For example, canning, dehydrating, and so forth. But it’s also important to learn about short-term food storage. For example, making fruits and veggies last a few weeks instead of a few days. There are two reasons: First, most disasters are short-term. If you can make your food last a week or two longer, it will be easier to get buy until the grocery stores reopen. Second, it will save you a lot of money.
To that end, I want to share this article from DIY & Crafts. They offer food storage tips like: store rooted veggies in pots, store onions in pantyhose, store herbs in plastic, store apples with potatoes, use an ethylene gas absorber, wrap bananas before storing them, and more. There are a ton of great ideas in this article so check it out.
