This post of how to store Radishes was sponsored by P&G as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review
Every Summer, I look forward to planting my garden so I can have fresh radishes. Radishes have always been my favorite vegetable! They are so delicious to just snack on with a bit of salt. But the hard thing is once they are harvested if you don’t use them quickly they go soft. And that is really the best part of the radish, the crunch!
That is until I found out the best kitchen hack to keep radishes fresh! So I’m going to share my secret kitchen hack on how to store radishes so you can enjoy them fresh and crisp!
Store Radishes to stay Fresh and Crisp
If you follow this simple kitchen hack using one of my favorite P&G Bounty Advanced Paper Towels, then you can keep your radishes fresh and crisp for up to 1-2 weeks in the fridge!
I like to use the Bounty Advanced paper towels because they let you use the smaller size when needed. But mostly because of the quality, they don’t give out and fall apart when wet like other brands have done. It’s a classic “You get what you pay for” scenario.
Some people may say this kitchen hack keeps your radishes fresh for 1 week. But I actually forgot about my radishes before I went out of town for a week. When I got back my radishes were still fresh and crisp 1.5 weeks later! I’ve been able to keep mine fresh up to 2 weeks using Bounty Advanced Paper Towels and a resealable bag.
But before I get to my kitchen hack, I gotta share a few more homemaking tips. Running a home can be costly. And when you have kids it can get messy.
Homemaking Tips for a smooth home
That is why I love P&G products from Costco. They always provide quality products that have been tried and tested and proven through the years. I mean they are the same products my mom used when I was a kid! And they are still just as great today!
Homemaking tip #1: Buy brands you know and trust. I always go for brands that I trust to work, instead of buying the newest unproven brand.
Homemaking Tip #2: Monthly Shopping Trips. This is something my parents did. They would schedule a big monthly shopping trip. And on this shopping trip they would purchase all shelf-stable foods and household supplies for the entire month. This often allowed them to save time and money.
They saved time because that means you aren’t running to the grocery store every few days. You can now cut down to just a quick weekly or every other week grocery trip for fresh foods only.
They saved money because
- Less trips to the store equals less gas cost
- Less chances to purchase extras because you aren’t at the store as many times in a month
- Only one main shopping trip means only buying what is on your list because you fill up your cart. When you see that much you know it is going to cost a bundle – it is easier to say no to the impulse buying
Homemaking Tip #3. Buy in bulk when you can. We are all about saving money. Which is another reason I love P&G Household Need products from Costco. They are quality, you use less so they last longer and you can purchase them in bulk at Costco!
If you have ever potty trained, you know you go through a lot of Charmin Ultra Soft Toilet Paper! I’m not always a brand snob, but when it comes to my toilet paper you will not find me buying anything other than Charmin Ultra Soft!
With kids learning to cook and helping with the household cleaning, we go through many Bounty Advanced paper towels each day!
With kids and a new baby, we also go through a lot of Tide Pods laundry detergent! Rose’s skin reacts to many other detergents. So the classic Tide is my staple in our house.
So I like to shop for our most crucial P&G Household Need products at Costco to ensure I get them at a great discounted price. And so that we have enough product on hand to last us until our next Monthly shopping trip!
Radishes Kitchen Hack
So now that we have those homemaking hacks out of the way, let’s get to a fun kitchen hack! You can check it out in this short Kitchen Hack Video below. Or for written instructions keep reading.
With summer here, our kitchen is always bustling with kids making some kind of a mess. So our Bounty Advanced Paper Towels are always a popular item.
But you will be amazed to find out that they are great for more than just wiping up spills or cleaning the house!
This is how you store radishes to keep them fresh and crisp for up to 1-2 weeks in the fridge!
First, select a great bundle of radishes from the store or pluck your own from your garden.
Remove the leaves.
Wash them to remove any dirt.
Remove the stem, and roots. If you leave these on, the Radishes shrivel and go soft.
Now here is the biggest secret. After you trim off the leaves, stem and roots that often leaves the radish open to drying out. But when you use this secret kitchen hack it keeps them moist and crisp all week long!
Get a large gallon-sized resealable bag and Bounty Advanced Paper Towels.
Line the bottom of the resealable bag with Bounty Advanced Paper Towels.
Put still-damp radishes on top of the Bounty Advanced Paper Towels.
Add another layer of Bounty Advanced Paper Towels.
Add another layer of still-damp radishes on top.
Repeat this process of a layer of Bounty Advanced Paper Towels and a layer of damp radishes until all the radishes are in place.
Make sure the final layer is a layer of Bounty Advanced Paper Towels.
Squeeze out excess air from the bag and seal.
Now store the bag in the fruit or vegetable drawer in your fridge. And your radishes will keep fresh and crisp for 1-2 weeks!
And whenever you have a craving for fresh radishes, just open the bag, move the paper towels to the side and take out your radishes. Replace the paper towels, reseal the bag, and return to the fridge. The rest will continue to keep!
