Purchasing Vegetables

Buy small quantities of fresh vegetables every 2-3 days if possible. Vegetables that are fresh taste better.

Handle all vegetables carefully because:

  • Roughly handled vegetables deteriorate more quickly - bruising increases respiration and moisture loss, resulting in flavour changes and a shorter shelf life
  • Broken or damaged skin lets micro-organisms into the vegetable and it will deteriorate faster.
