Orange and Lemon
During the winter, keep your Oranges and Lemons on your terrace. Do not pile the oranges to each other so as not to crush them. In this way, you will guarantee a shelf life of up to 35 days for oranges and around 45 days for lemons. It’s important, if you choose to keep citrus fruits on the terrace, make sure that there are no cold temperatures that lead to night frosts and that inevitably ruin the citrus fruit. Remember to keep the citrus fruits away from apples or overripe fruit or march as they could ruin them.
You can keep your Clementines in the fridge. If you decide to close them in an envelope, it’s preferable in a network in order to allow the circulation of the air and to prevent the formation of mold. Avoid keeping your Clementines next to overripe or marching fruits because they could ruin them. In this way, you will guarantee a shelf life of up to 20 days.
Saffron, Honey and Licorice
