The juiciness of the fruit. The way it makes my body feel. The smiles on the faces of my family. This is what makes fruit a must have EVERYDAY.
I often get asked, where did you get such amazing fruit?
I purchase my delectable pieces of goodness the same place as you do. The thing is, I have learned to keep them fresh right up until I serve them so they have that just picked taste. You want that too, right?!
Bring on the FRESHNESS! Fruit really is what makes summer for me and these new produce keepers from Good Cook are FABULOUS!
How often have you used only half a tomato, grapefruit or lemon? I do that ALL the time. These produce keepers will keep it fresh for the next time you want to use it. I also like to use them as containers for cut up melon and other fruits too.
My most favorite one is the asparagus keeper. When I was a kid, my grandma always told me to keep the asparagus in water so they stay fresh. I just learned that if you keep them in water they will continue to grow. Woohoo, more asparagus for your buck! The asparagus keeper is also great for keeping green onions fresh and crispy. I often have to eat these straight out of the fridge!

Make a RAINBOW FRUIT PLATTER for your family or next event!
2 quarts fresh strawberries (RED)
1 medium cantaloupe (ORANGE)
2-3 bananas (YELLOW) You can also slice them in half with the peels on. For my classroom preschoolers, these were always the first to be eaten.If you have extra, you can place it in the banana keeper. Dried bananas are fun to put in this keeper and take along for a fun treat. This one is my kids favorite because of its fun shape.
1 medium honeydew melon (GREEN) Kiwi or green grapes would be delicious as well.
1 pint of blueberries (BLUE)
20-30 grapes (PURPLE)
NOTE: I agree this is technically not a rainbow, with colors like indigo and violet but sometimes a little improvisation doesn’t hurt.
Clean and wash the strawberries and cut them in half. Next, cut your cantaloupe and honeydew into one inch pieces or use a melon baller. Rinse your blueberries and grapes as well. Add them all to the platter in the order above. Easy, but I guarantee it will be the first thing eaten during your meal or party. Don’t be afraid to get your kids in on this one to arrange the fruit. I’m sure they will love helping out! Enjoy!!
