A few tricks I've picked up...

Every now and again, I come across a food-saving tip that sticks out in my head. Better even is when those tricks really work! Here are a few food preservation techniques I've learned since I've run my own kitchen:

Put a slice of bread in the bag with freshly-baked cookies.

The bread will harden, but the cookies will remain soft.

When storing potatoes, place an apple in the bag.

The apple will delay the growth of eyes on the potatoes.

When preparing avocados or guacamole, leave the pit in the mixture and add lime or lemon juice (to taste).

These two things (especially the juice) will keep the avocado green much longer. Be sure to refrigerate as well.

Do you have any food saving tips from your kitchen?

A slice of bread or a couple marshmallows added to a bag of brown sugar will help keep it soft. I know more but am brain dead at the moment from not a great night with baby girl!
