A to Z of Food Storage


Best Storage:

Room Temp

Try not to over-buy with bananas. They are best kept at room temperature as they will turn brown in the fridge. Bananas produce ethylene which speeds up ripening, so keep that in mind if placing other fruit and veg close by. Slow ripening by separating your bunch - create a little space between individual bananas.



Put whole bananas still in their skins straight into your freezer. The frozen banana skin will turn brown, however the inside is great for recipes. Freeze peeled bananas or pieces in an airtight container.

Use it up!

Banana Bread, cakes, muffins, or smoothies. Got bits of squashy fruit coming home in kid’s lunchboxes?Add them to a container in your freezer and when you have enough, blitz the frozen fruit with a little water or milk to make a delicious yet healthy fruity ice-cream the kids will love!
