Inspiring way to store your produce


Wow, I’m so inspired by this video, look at the incredibly beautiful way she stores her vegetables. We have a fairly small fridge for American standards and I know as these boys grow older and hungrier, I’m going to have to get creative with food storage. Why aren’t these containers being sold yet?

I love how the basis behind her project is about saving traditional oral knowledge passed down generation by generation. You can read more at her website here.

  1. What a great way to store vegetables! Where did she get her containers?

  2. That is absolutely fantastic. I already forwarded it to all my fellow classmates. Thanks so much for sharing!

    That’s neat! I didn’t know that about apples and potatoes… Yeah, I would probably eat my veggies more promptly and regularly if they were visible in my kitchen instead of stuffed into crisper drawers where they are easily forgotten.

    Agree with all of the above comments, I would also add that it was beautiful. I love the natural beauty of the food it’s self! Bravo!

  5. Yes, I was going to say beautiful – love this :-)

  6. Reblogged this on toxicvegan and commented:
    I love this beautiful way of storing vegetables *completely changes new kitchen design*

  7. I think this is great, too. That being said, I LOVE my freezer on the bottom refrigerator, ’cause it moves the produce drawers up higher. It’s SO much easier to see what you have. Produce doesn’t get hidden. :)

  8. Beautiful, yes indeed. But our house isn’t that spare — and we’re eating 20+ apples a week. If we were not in need of shopping, it would be great. What about summer? I’m going to try to eat as we go, but really. . .it seems as though it would work perfectly for a small family! And allow you to have a much smaller refrigerator.

  9. This is simple yet very true way of saving fruits and vegetables. I think we can also easily mimic the setting as well. For me, it would be nicer to be closer to ground since I am sort. :) I would LOVE to try.

    That was very interesting. I like the idea of our food being out and visible. Why do we “hide” our veggies in a drawer in the fridge? At my house, these are the things that go bad. Better to have them out so you can see them and use them!
