Picky About Produce

shopping cartSniffing, thumping, squishing. Have you tried it all when it comes to choosing fresh produce at the grocery store? There are a million different techniques to choosing the best celery and broccoli. And we could discuss choosing watermelon for the next 12 pages. No matter what technique you have adopted, there are some simple rules that should be followed.

  • Look for produce that is free of any unusual odor or color. These are sure signs of spoilage and mold.
  • Handle produce gently to reduce bruising. Bacteria can thrive in bruised areas.
  • Keep produce on the top of other foods in a shopping cart and separate from fresh meats.
  • Remember that buying under-ripe produce isn't always the best option. Peaches, cantaloupe and nectarines are examples of fruits that may soften during storage, but they won't ripen.
For the best quality produce and to avoid throwing away spoiled produce, select an amount that you can use within a short time.
