Strawberry Containers for Produce Storage

Since Publix has strawberries on sale for $1.25, we have lots of them on hand. As I cleaned them today, I thought it would be great to use them for storing other produce. And it worked beautifully. Now, the fridge doesn't have to be littered with those thin produce bags!

Asparagus are $1.99/lb at Publix.

Lay it on it's side on a cutting board, keep the rubber bands on, and cut off the ends and portion sizes. Same with parsley and cilantro, I keep the ends for making broth.
The top and middle portions I'll store in the fridge and cook this week. The bottom pieces will be flash frozen for later. A friend assured me these freeze fine.

  1. I love finding new ways to repurpose containers! I'm like you it seems like such a waste to throw out perfectly good containers!

  2. I use them too! It's great for vegetables isn't it?


Love to hear what you think! Leave a little note to let me know you dropped by today.
