Avocado kept fresh
3yr
I recently found an easy way to store half / part of an avocado from turning brown .
Simply cover it in plastic wrap ( in a nicely sealed air tight manner ) and place in the fridge.
  • Rachna Yes! Also storing it with the pit and in lemon juice also works! #kitchentips

Wrap cheese in parchment or wax paper, then store it in a plastic bag to preserve the surface of the product and keep it moist.

Don't keep olive oil above the stove! Oils go rancid easily, and should be stored in a cool, dark place.
