An Indonesian maid shared with me a week ago a way to preserve fruits and vegetables which she learned from a family when she baby-sat for them in KL. That family was using "Aluminum coated plastic bags" to keep their fruits and vegetables fresh for weeks!!! It's so amazing.
<Di ko alam kung sosyal na maid/yaya ito at nakakapaginnernet pa, or basurerang environmentalist>
I thought it was a good idea to save some unwanted resource which most people would throw away without any second thought and here I am sharing with you the usefulness of this unwanted resource.
<Talaga eh di magchopsuey na lang kaya ako?>
Here is the type of aluminum coated plastic bag from Quaker. You can use any other type as well as long as it has the same type of material.
<Ayyy may endorsement para sa Quaker. Nakikita ko nang mejo tataas ang sales nila. Pero slight lang yah know. Isang bag lang ang bibilihin para supot suputan.>
You can put plenty of fruits and vegetables in it.
After one week, the vegetables are still fresh! Amazing, isn't it? No dehydration at all.<Malay ko ba kung one week na yan o kakalagay mo lang ng gulay jan?>
<Okra talaga ang example noh? Pde naman ibang gulay na ndi naglalaway. At bakit okra ang tawag nya? Ano ang english ng okra? Sanay ka bang maokray? Ito at marami pang katanungan ay masasagot sa pagbabalik ng... message na to sa sender. Sana masagot nya kagad noh?>
But don't fold or seal the opening of the bag. Just leave the bag open and it will do the magic work for you already. Try it out.
You would sure like it very much too.
Instead of throwing these useful things away, re-use it again and you will be inherently joining the group of "Saving the Mother-Earth" campaign too.
