Ancient Tupperware

Fruit in t'ware box

We love having a big array of different fruits for our cooked, five-grain cereal in the morning. There is almost always a piece of this, or half of that left over to be used the next day. This is how I store the remaining fruit from day to day.

This is one of a set of six boxes of two sizes that does a really good job of keeping our fruit fresh from day to day. Because we eat such a variety of fruits each day, it follows that I have to make arrangements to store half (or more) of nearly all fruits until at least the next day, if not longer. It takes us nearly a week to do away with the bright baubles provided by the pomegranates, so it is especially important to keep it viable. These boxes, combined with the Fresh Paper, provide the wherewithal to do exactly that.

The little holes are each covered with a piece of plastic that can be left open, or closed, independently of the other. Mostly I leave them both open for maximum air circulation. The bottom is ridged so that fluid does not collect on the bottom surface of the container and spoil the food within.

Amazingly, these containers are still available (though not inexpensive) through Amazon.

The little white papers? Those are the Fresh Paper bits that I keep everywhere that there is fresh produce. It is amazing how much longer our produce lasts using them. I rarely need to throw out produce because it has somehow spoiled while I wasn’t looking.

You can read more about Fresh Paper at a blog that I wrote way back when. It really works as advertised. I am thrilled with the much smaller amount of fresh produce that is now lost to spoilage.

I am not an affiliate for Amazon, so if you wish to buy these products, please go to your favorite portal to give someone the chance to make a few pennies from your purchase.

And take a good look at those green grapes . . . they are so big that I cut them into six or eight pieces before putting them into the bowl. I have been eyeing them for a long time, waiting for them to come down in price. They are currently $4.00 a pound, but I could wait no longer. They have a very nice texture, a delicate, yet not too sweet, flavor, and each one is big enough [almost] to enjoy as a piece of fruit on its own.

    The fruit looks so tasty! I have one piece of Tupperware left – a big white colander that I use every time I rinse fresh fruits or vegetables. I wish they still had Tupperware parties!

    I was wondering the other day how long I’ve had my large Tupperware measuring bowl with handle. It holds – a quart or two? – and I think I’ve had it since my kids were small. 40+ years. It’s still good as new and I use it all the time. When I did a lot of baking, it was great to use with a hand mixer, I could hold the mixer in one hand, and the Tupperware handle in the other, and it stayed in one place, then I could pour out the batter. It has a pour spout. Yup, good stuff! If I was invited to a Tupperware party, I’d go for sure! 🙂

      Check on line, Barbara. Try the link in my reply to gypsy97 below. I looked at only that one place, but there may be other ways to get some new pieces by ordering on line. I’m going to check it out tomorrow. Time for bed now.

    I have some Tupperware at home, too, for my cheese and lunchmeat. We don’t put fruits in the fridge because it’s cold enough here. Your fruits look fantastic, virtual hugs Mitza
