What effect does a paper bag have on a banana?

Placing bananas in a paper bag or any other enclosed environment will hasten the ripening process. This is due to the fact that, as a banana ripens, it emits ethylene gas. Ethylene gas is essential in the ripening process. If you place bananas in a bag, the gas concentrates and the ripening process accelerates. Ethylene gas is what banana importers use to accelerate the ripening of bananas prior to sending them to market.

If uncooked potatoes are left in a hot car all day are they still safe to eat?

Yes, they are OK if you are talking about leaving a bag of unprocessed, raw potatoes in the car. Their keeping quality may have degraded, but they should be safe to use.

If you are talking about a potato casserole, then I would say, "No, they are not safe to eat."

This fruit will last about a week if uncut. If cut it will only stay fresh a day or 2. Cutting allows the air to dry it out if it is not plastic wrapped. It tends to become watery if stored in an air tight container.

How to Create Meal Ideas for One?

Cooking for yourself can be challenging. Most recipes are formulated for more than one serving, which can make for a lot of leftovers, waste, and added expense. However, if you find yourself needing to cook only for yourself, you can follow a few meal ideas, which can help you in your food planning.

First of all, you can start by incorporating salads into your diet. Bagged salad mixes can be bought early in the week and kept for several days, allowing you to pick out the amount that you need when you want it. Also, at the beginning of each week, mix your own salad dressing using a three to one ratio of olive oil to lemon juice or acid of your choice. You can adjust the seasonings with whatever you want like mustard or fresh herbs. A dressing like this will keep in the refrigerator for as long as the salad lasts.

Next, consider purchasing your meats from a butcher that sells things individually rather than large, pre-packaged meats. You can buy one serving instead of having to buy several pieces of meat at a time. If you do have to buy extra meat, consider fixing meals that can be made in bulk and that freeze well. For example, you could buy a larger chuck roast and cook a beef stew with the meat. You can eat half of it during the week and freeze the other half into individual portions that can be frozen and thawed out at your convenience in the future.

Another idea that you can use is the idea of reusing your leftovers and turning them into new meals. For example, one night you could roast a chicken and eat your portion. You will have ample leftovers that you can use the next day for a chicken salad. You can also use the carcass to make the base of a chicken soup. The leftover chicken meat could also be used to make sandwiches.

Finally, make sure that you shop efficiently for yourself. Do not buy more food than you need and try buying items and freezing them when they are on sale. Vegetables can go bad quickly, so try buying frozen vegetables if possible. They often have more nutrients and flavor than even fresh vegetables because they are picked at the height of their freshness and flash frozen immediately.

Cooking for one can be tricky, but with enough planning and careful thought, you can create wonderful meals for yourself that will leave you nourished and satisfied.

Where should you store cut fruits?

You can store your cut fruits in bowls with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Make sure you poke a few holes into it. Covering is necessary primarily to protect your fruit from picking up other odors within the fridge and the holes permit the fruit to breathe. However, this is not a fool-proof method. There is still a small chance of oxidation because of its exposure to outer air.

Watermelon

How long is unrefrigerated cut watermelon safe?

According to the FDA Bad Bug Book, the pH of watermelon is between 5.2 and 5.8 - which is not low enough to discourage the growth of pathogens. I would treat cut watermelon like any other potentially hazardous food and not leave it unrefrigerated for more than 2 hours. If this is at a picnic where temperatures reach 90 degrees F, then limit it to one hour.
