You know by most people’s standards regarding groceries the moment an apple gets soft the average person just chucks it in the trash. People can really eat a lot of things they otherwise think are not edible. For example a bowl of apples that are softening can still make a batch of fried apples. My husband and I go to the mountains every fall to stock up on apples, cabbages, pumpkins, and other produce that will keep over the winter. We got so busy this past year we did not get to all of our apples so recently we found some time and decided to process the last batch of apples into dried apples. We store them and our cabbages in a refrigerator in the garage and while their appearance is less than ideal 6 months later they are still good and yummy they just have less moisture in them is all.
My cabbage when I pulled it out looked horrible but once you peeled a couple of layers back it looked brand new and was delicious. Why do we trust everyone else but ourselves. True you should be careful about bacteria and germs but when we are talking about foods that nature designed to keep long-term that is less of a concern.
If it’s a food that is meant to be kept for long-term storage you may be able to keep it and still eat it much longer than you thought possible…….sounds scary to some maybe…but its not a risk at all and well I don’t mind if you don’t want to share my apples…not at all…;)
Thanks for stopping by everyone and just know I will be much happier once my pc is back online again!
