To maintain maximum the flavor and nutrition of fresh produce, harvest early in the morning
when sugar content is highest and store them properly. For asparagus, parsley, basil, broccoli,
cabbage, carrots, peas, and green beans, rinse and store in plastic bags in the refrigerator.
Keep peppers in the hydrator section of the fridge but don’t place them in a plastic bag. Store
winter squash and onions in a dry, cool basement or garage. Eggplants and tomatoes are best
stored at room temperature.
