Cooking with fruit is lots of fun, and can add a burst of colour to your meals. Here’s how to store, prepare and cook some of our favourite fruits to make the most of the produce you buy on Morrisons Market Street.

Tips For Cooking Fruit

 

  1. Store apples and potatoes together. Apples produce ethylene, which prevents potatoes from sprouting, so you’ll get the most out of what you buy and reduce waste.
  2. Keep chopped apples fresh. A little squeeze of lemon juice will stop apple slices from browning. Water with a hint of honey does the trick too.
  3. Speed up ripening. Place fruits together in a plastic bag - this concentrates their ethylene gases, helping them ripen faster.
  4. ‘Hull’ your strawberries with a straw. Press one through the bottom of the strawberry until it breaks through the top - and takes the hull (the white center of the berry) with it.
  5. Keep tomatoes out of the fridge. Chilling them can harm the texture, taste and moisture, so keep them on the counter - and add a little colour to your kitchen at the same time.
  6. Put apples in the fridge. Apples last longer in cold temperatures - put a wet paper towel on top of them to retain crunchiness. You cans store them with potatoes too to keep the spuds fresh as well.
