Before I dig in to talk about these awesome produce bags, I have a bit of good news. After many months of dogged work, I turned the draft of my new cookbook in last night. It is a HUGE relief to have passed it off into my editor’s hands and have a few weeks off from working on it. Thank you all for your patience and support!
I have long been devoted to using reusable totes, washable sacks, and other durable containers in place of disposable ones. The one place where I’ve struggled to find a solid reusable solution is for produce storage once it’s in the refrigerator. I’ve got plenty of mesh bags, but they don’t keep do a good job of maintaining crispness. I wash and reuse the plastic grocery store bags, but they just don’t hold up over time.
That’s where these cloth produce bags from Beautiful Earth come in. Made from cotton fabric (either cheesecloth or organic), they are endlessly reusable and do an amazing job of keeping fragile produce fresh in the fridge. You simply get the bags damp before putting your lettuce, green beans, or carrots in the crisper drawer. It’s awesome and so simple!
Thanks to the owner of Beautiful Earth, I have a set of the Fill Your Fridge bags in organic cotton to give away to a Food in Jars reader. This set includes 2 large bags, 1 medium, and 1 small. It’s a perfect set to you started on the reusable produce bag path.
