Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Tip for fresh fruit in the fridge

Kitchen Tip Tuesdays

In a previous week's kitchen tip, I wrote about my soft resting place for fragile fruit that needs to ripen at room temperature.

When my fruit is ripe, I usually move it to the fridge for cold storage until we eat it. (Bananas are the exception.) Joshua prefers chilled fruit and I must admit, I'm starting to, too.

The fruit boxes at Costco come with soft trays for the fruit to nestle. I moved some juicy ripe peaches, tray and all, to my fridge drawer last week:

Fresh fruit storage in the fridge

As I'm using the peaches, I'm placing other fuit in the spots. Pears, oranges, apriums. The tray cushions the fruit as I open and close the drawer.

Strawberries are in season, along with peaches. I put this plate of fruit out for dinner last evening and had to snap a picture before we started eating; it was so pretty! :)

10 Tips for Hosting a Summer Grilling Party

I love grill parties in the summer - it's a way to get the whole family involved. Here are some tips for making things easier.

Great tip for securing fruit

Great tip for securing fruit so it doesn't bang around and bruise in the refrigerator. I so need to do that!

The tip I would like to share today is how to use your leftover potato peels for a tasty treat.

Double Boiler

I also like chilled fruit and keep mine in the fridge(except bananas, too!). ;) My friend also likes to slice peaches and freeze them on a tray. They taste AMAZING! Frozen grapes, too! =D

I posted about making your own double boiler.

Don't Cross Contaminate

I like frozen fruit a lot. Peaches are one of my favorite to freeze. I love most fruits, so thank you for the tip.

My tip is about preventing cross contamination while working with meat in the kitchen:

8 Ways to Use up Bread Crumbs

That fruit looks so refreshing!
My tip today is how to use up bread crumbs.
Thanks for hosting!


I don't know if you'll want it since it's also a recipe, but my post today is about making homemade rolls in less than an hour (with tips like rising the bowl of dough in a sink of warm water).

By the way that picture of sliced fruit is just stunning. Makes my mouth water!


Using inexpensive canned salmon

I was just thinking this morning about how I was bruising the apples every time I open and close the refrigerator. I'll have to try this.

Today I wrote about eating salmon bones! Well, how to crush them so you can eat them:)

Thanks for hosting the fun again!


I love my fruit cold too.

I love my fruit cold too. I'd never heard of a aprium before unti I looked them up. They sound wonderful since I like both apricots and plums. I'm going to have to make a special note to look for them in my local grocer's produce section or to see if a friend can get me some from Costco to try.
