to do. to see. to hear. to love

Apples emit a lot of ethylene gas. It has the effect of speeding up the ripening process of fruits and vegetables kept together with apples. When combined with potatoes, apples prevent them from sprouting.

Keeping roots in a vertical position allows the organism to save energy and remain fresh for a longer time. This shelf gives a place for them to stand easily, using sand. At the same time, sand helps to keep the proper humidity

Rice absorbs humidity easily. The spice container with rice inside helps spices stay dry without forming into lumps.

An egg has millions of holes in its shell. It absorbs the odour and substance around itself very easily. This creates a bad taste if it’s kept in the fridge with other food ingredients. This shelf provides a place for eggs outside of the fridge. Also the freshness of eggs can be tested in the water. The fresher they are, the further they sink.

this is even better than the vintage printables from earlier today. found via all the mountainsthis website is about saving food from the fridge.

we abuse our food so badly…so badly. in so many ways, i sometimes find it overwhelming. i find this super inspiring and i love the tidbits of knowledge.

check out jihyun ryou’s creations at save food from the fridge

and the blog too… where you can share your knowledge. for example, did you know that tomatoes should not be put in the fridge for they loose their flavor?  if you buy fresh herbs or greens you can put them in a vase with water(below the leaves) to help them last longer. and it’s pretty! actually, cookbook, my favorite  little grocer here in LA, does this!

anyone else have any tidbits?
