Amazing Way to Preserve Refrigerated Fruits & Vegetables

This was sent by my best friend who’s also a homemaker and a mother like me and I’d just like to share this with you. You may share this as well with your sisters, mothers, friends and anyone whom you think will benefit from this. I already did this today to save my veggies.

PRESERVE YOUR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES!!!

My Indonesian maid loves me so much that she shared with me a week ago that she found a way to preserve fruits and vegetables.

She said it was one of my aunts who taught her when she baby-sits at one family in KL.

That family was using "aluminum coated plastic bags" to keep their fruits and vegetables for weeks to keep them fresh.

I thought it’s a good idea to save some unwanted resource which most people would throw away. And here I am sharing with you the usefulness of an unwanted resource in action.

Here is the kind of aluminum coated plastic bag from Quaker. Any aluminum coated bag will do.

You can put as much fruits or vegetables as you want.

Look at what my mate found after 1 week...the vegetables are still fresh! Amazing isn't it? No dehydration at all. ☺

Look at the okras (ladies fingers) they are still very, very fresh without dehydration.

But don't fold or seal the opening of the bag. Just leave the bag open and it will do the magic work for you. Try it out... you would sure like it very much too.
