Tips When Using Fruit
Most of these tips are from the web site : WWW.tipnut.com , ones I have used or off of various web sites.
Leave the peel on and freeze in a freezer bag
Mash a ripe banana and place it in a sealed container to freeze. When you need bananas for baking (such as banana bread–yum!), just thaw and use. Frozen bananas are great for making smoothies, too. I just throw the bananas whole into the freezer. When you need to use them, defrost, snip off the end and squeeze the lovely goo out.
Tap the fruit with your fingers, if it sounds louder then the apple is crisp and juicy. If it sounds heavy, then the apple is no longer crisp or dry water.
Press the apple fruit, if fruit is not hard anymore does not mean the fruit is crisp again. Of course later the results will be disappointing if eaten. A good apple whose skin is smooth there are no spots, when held still feels hard and smells wonderful.
Choose bananas that are round and avoid choosing dried banana stalks. Bananas are good should be yellow or green.
Do not choose the color brown bananas.
Choose a melon whose skin is crisp, not mushy. Some say that the sweet melons filled surface veins are very prominent. Uric had covered most of the basic colors of melon skin.
Select grapes that are still attached to the rod.
Do not pick the grapes that are soft and wrinkled, select grapes that are still fresh.
Note also the thickness of the skin, if thin, the water content contained in the grapes is much
Choose the avocado is still hard and bright color of her skin (not too ripe).
Ignore the avocado flesh flaccid when held.
Save avocado purchased earlier in the rice to mature rapidly.
How to check is ripe or not that is stick a toothpick into the meat near the stalk. If it can be moved in and out easily, it means that an avocado is ripe.
Use your sense of smell.
Hold the fruit durian, and if stung fragrance, meaning ripe durian.
Cut the stems, if the center yellow means good.
The opposite of an apple. Orange skin that is not smooth and there is spotting her, that’s a good citrus fruit.
Also plug the thumb nail you to the center of citrus fruits, orange means that if the software is good.
Do not forget to pick oranges that are still fresh, do not choose oranges that have been soft.
Choose mangoes that fragrant and not mushy, and there are no bruises on the surface.
Choose a yellowish stalk end.
Choose pineapples that are still strong and fresh stems.
Choose a pineapple is bright yellow, which is not too hard, and sweet-scented.
Choose a fat and heavy.
Avoid the yellow color to fade, wilt or look brownish, or look dry on the whole section.
Choose pears that smooth skin, no spots and the condition of the fruit is still hard.
If the watermelon sounds echoing knock with your fingers, then the fruit was fresh and good.
If the former stems yellowish mean the fruit is ripe, but if it is white, is not yet ripe.
This type of product may be a good option when traveling or if you need to take fresh fruit to a potluck or other event.Fresh cut fruit that has turned brown is still generally all right to eat but avoiding brown coloring is optimal.
