Sweet and juicy "mandarin oranges". Maybe some people are worried about how to store it because they buy a lot or get a lot of it during the season. This time, we will introduce how to keep the freshness of mandarin oranges as much as possible by dividing them into "normal temperature", "refrigerated" and "frozen"!
How to save oranges
Room temperature storage of mandarin orangesIt is said that the storage temperature suitable for mandarin oranges, which are sensitive to high temperature and humidity, is about 5 to 8 degrees Celsius. In winter, it can be stored at room temperature (a cool and dark place with good ventilation).
Place newspaper on the cardboard or basket. If you don't have newspaper, you can use kitchen paper instead. Place the oranges on the newspaper with the calyx side down.
Cover the mandarin oranges with crumpled and wrinkled newspaper. Arrange the oranges on top of this and cover them with crumpled newspaper.
Store it in a cool and dark place with good ventilation. For cardboard, the lid does not close. Estimated storage period is about 1 to 2 weeks.
Refrigerated storage of mandarin orangesWrap the oranges one by one in newspaper or kitchen paper.
Put them all together in a plastic bag and store them in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator with the calyx part facing down. Estimated storage period is about 2 to 4 weeks.
Frozen storage of mandarin orangesIf there are oranges that cannot be eaten even if stored at room temperature or refrigerated, frozen storage is recommended.
Freeze the whole mandarin orangePeel the tangerines, remove the streaks, and wrap them in a wrap.
Put them all in a freezer bag or other freezer bag and store in the freezer. Estimated storage period is about 1 month.
Freeze mandarin oranges one bunch at a timePeel the mandarin oranges, peel the fruits one bunch at a time, and remove the streaks.
Wrap each bunch in plastic wrap and line it up in a vat, or put it in a freezer bag and store it in the freezer. Estimated storage period is about 1 month.
Basically, in winter, if you think you can eat it in a short period of time, store it at room temperature (in a cool and dark place), if you think it will take more than 1 to 2 weeks, store it in the refrigerator, but you will not be able to eat it! In that case, I think it's better to keep it frozen. Frozen storage requires a little time and effort for pretreatment, but it is convenient because you can make various arrangements such as smoothies, mandarin orange sauce, and toppings for desserts!
