What to do with surplus fruit and veg

vegetable storage rack

If ever you have surplus fruit and veg, fear not, help is at hand!

My tips are:

  • Eat as much as you can while its in season. No fruit or vegetables improve with storage.
  • Apples can be pressed to make your own apple juice. Do this while the apples are still crisp.
  • Store only produce that is in peak condition. Produce that isn't should be cooked and eaten or frozen.
  • Most produce likes cool, dark and dry conditions. An apple rack in a garage is perfect.
  • Handle produce carefully. That one bad apple can cause havoc.
  • Regularly check and remove anything which looks like it is about to rot (and is probably not worth eating anyway)
  • Only store what you think you will want to eat. If you have too much put it in a box by your garden gate with a note asking people to help themselves. Remember to leave some bags too.
