FridgeSmarts 101

So.. Tupperware has this awesome special going on.

This 4 piece FridgeSmarts set is ON SALE for ONLY $27.50.




Incredible.

When I first became a Tupperware Consultant, I just wanted to get discounted Tupperware for ME.  Well, how selfish of ME!  I soon became enamored with  my  Tupperware and decided I wanted to share it with the world!

That led me to my Modular Mates and to FridgeSmarts.

Modular Mates I was very familiar with... FridgeSmarts, not so much.

So, this is what I did.  I purchased strawberries and put them in a small FridgeSmart and left some in the original package and put them on a shelf in the fridge, and told the fam to LEAVE THEM ALONE.  In other words... "do not eat because I am conducting an experiment on "Food Rot".

Well, this is what I got AFTER 3 WEEKS!




I do know that we would normally eat strawberries faster than 3 weeks.  However, when they go on sale for $1.88 a quart, I buy two.  Typically, by the time we get to the 2nd quart, I am picking out white fuzzies.  (blech) and thus lost MONEY and an opportunity to be HEALTHY by eating my fruits and veggies.

After this successful experiment with the strawberries, I tried lettuce!... we were eating lettuce out of my large FridgeSmart for 4 weeks!   Nether a piece of wilted or brown slimy lettuce in site!   Bagged lettuce didn't last as long as the head lettuce I tore apart, but it lasted longer than had I kept it in the bag!

Incredible -  Knock me over with a carrot stick!!!

The below video is a lot of fun, but it does explain, in part, how FridgeSmarts work.  Enjoy.







This video shows some more - what it looks like in your fridge. 




Did you know that fruits and veggies can be classified into light breathers up to heavy breathers?   (I know, I grinned at that also).

Here is the lowdown - 
 
Refrigerate fruits and vegetables immediately in Tupperware FridgeSmart containers.

Dry Garlic, Mature Onions, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Winter Squash and unripe fruit are not recommended for refrigerator storage.

Fruits and vegetables are divided into 3 groups - High Breathers (leave both vents open), Medium Breathers (leave one vent open, one closed), and Low Breathers (keep both vents closed)

High (or Heavy!) Breathers include:


  • Artichokes
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Endive
  • Peas (including Snow Peas)
  • Spinach
  • Sweet Corn (dehusked)

Medium Breathers include:
Vegetables
  • Beans (including Snap Beans and String Beans)
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Fresh Herbs
  • Fresh Shallots
  • Green Onions
  • Greens (Collard, Kale and Swiss Chard)
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce, all types
Fruits
  • Ripe Apples
  • Citrus (including Grapefruit, Orange, Mandarin, Lemon, Tangerine and Lime)
  • Ripe Pears
  • Peppers (including Bell, Sweet, Hot and others)
Low Breathers include:
Vegetables
  • Asparagus
  • Beet Root
  • Button Mushrooms
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Okra
  • Radishes
  • Rutabaga
  • Summer Squash
  • Turnips
  • Zucchini
Fruits
  • Ripe Berries
  • All other ripe fruit not included in medium category
  • All fresh cut fruit
Although Tupperware works with the University of Florida and they have a lot figured out, here are some tips that you might find helpful:
  1. Try venting your mushrooms - I find they keep even longer
  2. Store cucumber at room temperature - you will find they do not go slimy. After a couple of weeks they may lose their color, but they will not rot even once they are cut. (I picked up this tip from a customer who has a produce store).
  3. Vent your cheeses keeping 1 or both vents open
  4. Experiment with 1, 2 or no vents open - find out for yourself what works in your fridge
Seriously - all kidding aside.

With the price of fresh fruits and veggies going up and up, and with more people growing their own, how can anyone not want to take advantage of  these containers!  

It is an investment pure and simple.

Contact me to order this special!  
Good until FEBRUARY 22nd!!!
