Produce storage tips

1/19/2017 10:15 AM

Fruits and vegetables generate ethylene gas while they ripen. As some fruits and vegetables produce more ethylene gas than others, it is important to store them separately from those that are very sensitive to ethylene. Leafy vegetables are very sensitive to ethylene, even in very low quantities. Lettuce, for example, begins to decay when exposed to ethylene gas at low temperatures. Products sensitive to ethylene gas, such as broccoli and bananas, spoil quickly if stored in the same areas as avocados, melons, and apples, which produce high levels of ethylene. See lists below for fruits and vegetables that create ethylene at high levels and those that are most affected by ethylene. Also, see link below for an easy to use storage chart.

Do you have hard water?

1/19/2017 11:40 AM

What is scale? Scale in water forms as a natural process. As rain falls, it picks up CO2, making the water slightly acidic, effectively becoming a natural solvent. As the rainwater seeps to underground aquifers, it dissolves minerals, thereby becoming “hard.” Hard water is generally concentrated with four hard minerals: calcium, magnesium, carbonate, and sulfate. Every water supply has some dissolved mineral content. How does scale form in my coffee maker? When energy (heat from heating element) is applied to hard water, the minerals “drop out” of the water and settle on surfaces…most commonly referred to as limescale. These minerals can form a hard crust that can cause many problems with equipment, from clogging to increased energy requirements and ultimately even failure of the coffee maker. Since all tap water contains some level of mineral deposits. To learn more about water hardness, including information specific to your region of the country, please click on the link below to the United States Geological Survey site.
