How to get organised?
Are you concerned that you will not be able to get through your bulk purchase before it turns bad? It may be a great idea to talk to your neighbour, a friend, or your family and split your purchase? That would save you both a major amount of time and you will be able to enjoy the best organic vegetables and fruit at a reduced cost to you.
Alternatively, you can organise a weekend to cook meals for the month or make some seasonal jams, pickles or sauces.
Do you have a large fridge? It’s certainly handy for bulk purchases if you do. It’s also good to remember that most fresh produce does do very well in the freezer. Simply chop what you think you will not be able to use and store in containers to use as needed. The freezer extends the natural shelf life by months. Freezing is also great for maintaining the nutritional properties of your food.
Most of your Organic Fruit and Veg will be stored in the fridge of course. It is important to consider a separate container to maintain the freshness of the products and to store them clean and dry as well as wrapped in plastic bags or paper towels.
A cool, dry place such as a cupboard is perfect for tropical fruits such as bananas, pineapples, mangoes, which are still ripening. Once your Organic Fruit is ripe it should always be stored in the fridge for a few days until you are ready to eat it. Once your fruit is ripe it should be eaten within a few days or it will start to degrade.
How much money can I save?
Buying in bulk will certainly save you money, especially if you like to cook in bulk and freeze any surplus that can not be eaten immediately. If you are looking to save money, it’s also a great idea to keep an eye on our ‘specials’ page, where you will find lots of bargains. Usually, the products you will find in our specials and bulk buys are those currently in season which are plentiful in the markets.
Eat seasonally and you will find that you are not only eating the freshest and most plentiful produce but also the most affordable produce on the market. Produce at the peak of its season also tastes better as the growing conditions are spot-on for maximum taste.
When buying vegetables in a bulk, remember to buy them when they are in season. The quality product is more likely to be good and it is also going to be cheaper because it is abundant. But the flavour is key, and it will surely taste better as they have grown and harvested at their natural cycle.
