Most fruits are perishable and require some method of storage to prevent spoilage and preserve freshness.
Preservation of unripe fruit
If you buy undercooked ones, they are not only unpalatable but also may harm your health. How to store them:
Place it at room temperature until it is ripe enough, and then store it in the refrigerator. The coldness of the refrigerator can keep the fruit fresh.
It is recommended to put hard-skinned fruits directly in the refrigerator, such as watermelon, pineapple, cantaloupe and other fruits.
Thin-skinned and soft-skinned fruits should be placed in plastic bags before putting them in the refrigerator. Such as apples, pears, mangoes, etc.
The two special fruits are lychee and longan. If they are stored in the refrigerator for a long time, the shell will become dry, hard and black, which will affect the flavor of the pulp. Therefore, it is recommended that you spray a little on the fruit before putting it in a plastic bag. The moisture keeps the pulp fresh. Lychees can be cut one by one with scissors, immersed in saltwater for a few minutes, then picked up, then put in a plastic bag and placed in the refrigerator, which can keep the flavor for a long time.
Fruits that cannot be cooled down and are easily spoiled are kept fresh at room temperature. Such as papaya, papaya is also a fruit that cannot be stored in the refrigerator. Black spots will appear, and although the display cabinet has the effect of absorbing water, once the refrigerated display cabinet is taken out, the temperature difference will cause moisture to appear on the surface of the papaya, and stale black spots will appear. Store in a cool place. In this way, the papaya can be stored for a long time. The correct preservation method should be to wrap the papaya in newspaper first and keep it fresh.
For fruits that are easily rotten in contact with the air, use a cool and fresh-keeping bag insurance method. Such as bananas, the correct way of bananas should be to put bananas into fruit preservation bags. Store in a cool place. The popular food here reminds everyone not to put bananas in the freezer.
If the skin is very thick, use the fresh-keeping bag insurance method. Such as watermelon, just cover the surface of the watermelon with plastic wrap. It is wrong to keep the watermelon in this way because the watermelon in the cake cabinet looks very easy. But in fact, the cooked food cabinet will absorb water from the skin of the watermelon, so even if it is covered with plastic wrap, it is useless, so the watermelon should be completely wrapped with plastic wrap, and the skin should be wrapped in the plastic wrap. Then squeeze the air out.
The preservation period is particularly short, and the cooling method should be used for those that may be spoiled within a day. Such as lychee, add about 10 grams of salt to a pot of water, soak for a while and then dry, put it in a fruit music fresh-keeping bag, put it in the sub-zero freezing layer, then take it out and thaw it naturally at room temperature. Lychee preservation should not be stored in the fresh-keeping library, remind everyone. It is best to store it in the freezing layer at a temperature below zero and let it thaw naturally after taking it out, because only in this way can the color, aroma and taste of lychees be effectively preserved.
