What’s the Purpose of a Vegetable Crisper Drawer?

What_s-the-Purpose-of-a-Vegetable-Crisper-DrawerYou may not think much about the crisper or veggie drawers in your refrigerator, but they do serve a purpose – they control humidity and keep your produce from drying out.

The website “The Takeout,” spoke to representatives at Whirlpool and Samsung for the article about how crisper drawers keep your produce fresh.

“In the regular shelves of your fridge, humidity diffuses into the air or gets sucked into a fan,” according to an article on The Takeout.

In a crisper drawer, that humidity is contained, to keep your leafy greens and thin-skinned produce fresher for a longer period of time.

Feelin’ Hot, Hot, Hot!

Hello to all my avid readers. I just want to take the time today to thank you for reading my posts, it means a lot to me.  I hope you have enjoyed our journey through the appliance world together, and I hope you learned some new things along the way.  Today will be my last blog, but no need to fear Lindsey will be taking over on Monday! So you will still be able to catch up on your appliance news.  I wish you all the best in life, and remember to stay positive through everything. I have enjoyed writing this blog and am sad to see it go, but it is time for me to move on into the field I went to school for. I am excited to start this new journey in my life, and who knows maybe I will start my own personal blog for you all to read.

I will leave you with a great recipe I tried this week, Cucumber Salsa. It has only 16 Calories in ¼ cup, and it tastes so refreshing!

What you will need:

2 cups finely chopped seeded peeled cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomato
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
4-1/2 tsp. minced fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
1/4 c reduced-fat sour cream
1-1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1-1/2 tsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. seasoned salt

Pinch of Chives

In a small bowl combine the first seven ingredients. In another bowl combine the sour cream, lemon juice, cumin, seasoning salt, and chives.  Pour this over the cucumber mixture and toss gently.  Serve with chips, and keep refrigerated.

**If you do not want such a spicy salsa be sure to NOT put in the jalapeno pepper seeds in- this is what causes the spiciness.
