Storing Summer Produce

Hosted by

Russ Parsons is the food editor for the LA Times and the author of How to Pick a Peach.  He offers these tips for storing summer produce:

1) Don't refrigerate all produce.  Tomatoes should never be refrigerated.  Peaches and Nectarines should only go in the fridge when they are ripe.

2) Store herbs like flowers - in a glass with water.  Place a sandwich bag with holes on top.

3) Wash produce right before you use it.
