Shelf Life Tips
- Wrap cut fruit tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil before refrigerating, or store in airtight container.
- To freeze plantains: (1) Peel and mash; (2) Add one tablespoon of lemon juice or 1/2 teaspoon ascorbic acid for each cup of mashed plantain to prevent browning; (3) Place in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
- Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
