Salt in milk and towel with vegetables: Strange ways to extend food validity

Australia's leading dietitian, Susie Burrell, recently revealed how you can save on your food expenses by a few tricks to help you in your home economy.

For example: Did you know that if you put a slice of bread inside the cookie box - keep it in its best condition, and if you wrap the edge of the bananas in foil, it will extend the life of the fruit next to them? And that if you wrap the green edible leaves in a damp kitchen towel and add a pinch of table salt to the milk will double their shelf life? These are just some of the tips Suzie has for you.

This will extend your food life

1. Store vegetables with a kitchen towel

If you throw your vegetables right in the fridge, they will quickly become soft and rot within days. To extend the shelf life of vegetables such as broccoli or cauliflower Suzie recommends dipping a kitchen towel in water and wrapping the fresh vegetables with it. "It will greatly extend the life of mostly leafy vegetables, which can be quite expensive -
So it helps save. "


2. Put bread in the cookie box and celery by the bread

While the cookie box is not the first place to consider storing your loaves of bread and baguettes, putting just one slice of bread on it will certainly help. The cookies will absorb moisture from the bread, leaving them crispier and crunchier over time rather than becoming soft just days after removing them from the packaging.

And in reverse - if you put a celery stick near a loaf of bread it will prevent it from becoming stale and moldy. "Just put some liquid, celery-rich, in a bag along with the slices of bread. The bread will absorb the liquid from the celery and it will help it to become soft and puffy again," says Borel.

3. Add a touch of salt to the milk

Adding a little table salt or baking soda to this milk will increase its lifespan in seven days, by lowering the bacterial activity that occurs in the milk, Susie reveals: "You only need a small amount, and don't worry it will increase the level of sodium or harm your taste."

4. Wrap the edge of the banana

Bananas cause other fruits to break down because of the high concentration of gas they produce quickly, destroying anything that comes into contact with them. One of the easy ways to extend the banana shelf life, and everything around it, is to wrap the black section with plastic wrap, foil or duct tape - that seal the gas, and keep the banana and everything in its area in good condition for a longer time. Once the bananas are ripe - put them in the fridge to extend their shelf life.
