Summer is a wonderful time for fresh produce. Unfortunately the warm and humid weather also makes produce spoil quickly. Since we live out in the country, I do my grocery shopping once a week. I need to make my fresh produce last the week or we go without!
I recently tried the Good Cook Produce Keepers and I am in love! I have always wondered if produce keepers actually extend the life. After putting the Good Cook Produce Keepers to the test, I can tell you they do!
I cut up a watermelon to make the Watermelon, Avocado & Feta Salad I posted this morning. For the leftover watermelon, I placed some in a Good Cook Melon Keeper and some in a regular bowl. I let the melon sit for 24 hours.
The result was the melon in the other bowl was watery. The melon in the Good Cook melon bowl looked fresher and held it’s shape better.
Of course the Good Cook Melon Keeper was meant for a half of a cantaloupe. But it works perfectly for cutup melon of any type!
I also tried the Good Cook Tomato Keeper. I found that the tomato stored in a baggie was watery and had lost it’s shape. The tomato in the keeper held up great for several days!
