Bluapple Review: This Amazon-Loved Gadget Extends the Life of Your Produce https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/bluapple-review/ https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/bluapple-review/#respond Mon, 20 Jun 2022 14:57:57 +0000 https://www.tasteofhome.com/?p=1776232 The Bluapple keeps fruits and vegetables fresh for weeks longer thanks to natural ethylene gas-blocking technology.

The post Bluapple Review: This Amazon-Loved Gadget Extends the Life of Your Produce appeared first on Taste of Home.

]]>
Keeping my fridge packed with good-for-you fruits and veggies is high on my priority list. But with a busy schedule and a house of finicky eaters, my produce has a habit of spoiling in the crisper before my family eats it. I’m always on the hunt for kitchen gadgets and storage containers to prolong my food’s shelf-life.

That’s why I was thrilled to try Bluapple, a cute refrigerator add with over 6,000 Amazon reviews and a 4.3-star rating. I was shocked at how much longer my nectarines and strawberries lasted just from tossing it in the refrigerator door! Here’s everything you need to know about Bluapple.

What Is Bluapple?

Bluapple Container Via Amazon.com

The adorably-packaged Bluapple is billed as a produce-prolonging miracle. It’s an apple-shaped container with packet inserts that absorb ethylene gas from the air surrounding your fruits and veggies. Ethylene gas is a naturally-occurring gas that produce gives off as it ripens, ultimately causing foods like lettuce, berries and cucumbers to spoil early. And even if you store delicate fruits and veggies in nifty containers like an avocado keeper or a produce keeper, keeping ethylene gas at bay is a delicate dance.

A Bluapple kit comes with disposable packets that fit into the palm-sized container, acting as an ethylene-fighting powerhouse as it absorbs gas—thus giving produce extra weeks of shelf life. Each packet lasts for up to three months and can be refilled at any time. The packets are compost-friendly, making it a zero-waste product you can feel good about using.

How We Tested It

Bluapple packet in the fridge door

A Bluapple kit includes two plastic apple-shaped containers and refill packets. After scouring the reviews, I discovered people were just as happy using the refill packets on their own. I decided to give this frugal method a try and was impressed with the results—even if it was slightly less adorable.

To give it an initial test, I placed a Bluapple refill packet next to my baking soda fridge deodorizer that I keep on a lower door shelf next to my Whole30 salad dressings and condiments. When the door of my refrigerator closes, it aligns perfectly with the crisper where my stone fruits and veggies live. Stone fruit like peaches, plums and nectarines are major ethylene gas-producers. I wanted the Bluapple packets within inches of my treasured nectarines in hopes of them remaining firm and juicy. Then I put a box of ethylene-sensitive strawberries on the same shelf and committed to not eating them for several days to see how my experiment panned out.

In eight days, I ate my way through 14 fresh and juicy stone fruits (thank you Bluapple!). When it came to berries, they were mold-free and as good as new three days into using Bluapple. What’s more, the kale I buy each week (but seldom make the most of) lasted without wilting. And the organic blackberries I typically race to eat the day after buying lasted several days without spoiling. Not only did Bluapple save my produce, it helped me enjoy my bounty of fruits and veggies for days longer than I expected.

Bluapple Product Features

Bluapple is a palm-sized, apple-shaped container that discreetly covers the insert packets (aka ethylene gas-fighters). Each packet of Bluapple powder must remain sealed tight to keep the ethylene-gas fighting substances from spilling in the fridge. The packet can live inside one of the Bluapple containers or on its own in the fridge. Though the packets last about three months, I have more fruits and veggies coming and going than the average person, so I swap my packets every six to eight weeks.

Bluapple doesn’t need to be thrown in with root cellar veggies though, which are ideally stored in well-ventilated garlic keepers, potato storage containers and onion keepers.

Pros

What I like about Bluapple:

  • Helps produce last longer
  • Affordable and more than pays for itself in saved produce
  • Easy to use
  • Compact
  • Zero-waste packets can be composted or sprinkled in the garden when you’re done using them
  • Made in the USA

Cons

Consider these factors before you buy:

  • While the blue plastic apple is certainly cute, it’s not necessary. Trying Bluapple without the extra plastic worked better for my family—and it saved us money.

FAQ

Will Bluapple make berries last longer?

Yes! Just make sure your berries are stored in containers with proper drainage and ventilation, and Bluapple will reduce the rate of spoilage by sopping up the ethylene gas they produce.

Will Bluapple work with bagged produce or sealed containers of greens?

The manufacturer suggests leaving some ventilation holes to allow Bluapple to work properly. If your produce comes bagged, we recommend tearing a small hole to promote air flow. Otherwise, Bluapple won’t work with fully-sealed salad and produce containers.

Can Bluapple be used outside of refrigerators, too?

Yes! Multiple Amazon reviewers say they’ve had success with Bluapple by placing it directly in (or near) fruit bowls.

What Other Reviewers Had to Say

“I love salads but hate how quickly vegetables go bad,” writes one five-star Amazon reviewer. “I bought these and put both in one drawer in my refrigerator. I put in two heads of iceberg lettuce, six small tomatoes, two cucumbers and a bag of lemons. Well, life got busy, and I forgot about my vegetables. A little more than two weeks later the lettuce was just starting to seem like it was wilting, and the tomatoes were still fresh and the cucumber a little soft. I cannot believe how well this Bluapple product works. You will not be disappointed!”

Heather, a verified Amazon purchaser says, “I cut up my romaine, green leaf lettuce, spinach and kale for the entire week. Before I purchased these, I could not eat it fast enough before it turned brown and got soggy and gross. This usually happened in a matter of days. It now stays fresh the entire week and has even kept it fresh for a week and a half. I just toss one of these in my salad bowl with the cut up greens, and it does the rest of the work. No more waste. I highly recommend these to keep lettuce of all kinds and veggies fresh.”

“I’ve had these little wonders for a couple of months now and I’m legitimately impressed,” shares Laura, another satisfied Amazon purchaser. “I put one in each fridge drawer and have seen a noticeable difference in how long our produce lasts. Strawberries, raspberries, peaches, lettuce, mushrooms—all things that typically don’t last very long—and they’re all still edible after two-plus weeks after purchase.”

Final Verdict

If you’re prone to throwing produce out more often than you care to admit, Bluapple is an Amazon purchase you won’t regret. The packets are affordable, so you can keep up with their refills, and it’s a product that reduces food waste dramatically. It more than pays for itself after a few saved cartons of strawberries, and the natural zero-waste approach is something everyone can appreciate.

Where to Buy

Toh Ecomm Bluapple Bag Via Amazon.com

Bluapple is available at Bed Bath & Beyond, The Container Store and on Amazon. The best deal is usually found on Amazon, where a set of two palm-sized apple balls with packet inserts retails at $13. Average households can get about three months of use out of a single Bluapple insert, making this product one of the best Amazon kitchen gadgets.

You can air fry nearly anything these days! In addition to chicken tenders, potato chips and bacon, did you know you can cook air-fryer frozen hamburgers in just about 10 minutes?

Air frying is a simple way to cook frozen foods you would typically deep-fry, grill or bake. It keeps the inside moist and tender while giving the exterior a nice crisp. Air frying frozen hamburgers is way quicker than firing up a grill and keeps the house cool by leaving the oven off. Plus, burgers cook evenly in the air fryer each and every time.

How to Cook a Frozen Hamburger in Your Air Fryer

stack of Frozen Hamburgers

You may be wondering if you can really cook frozen burger patties in the air fryer, and the answer is yes! It’s a great dinner option when you’re running short on time or just want to enjoy a classic hamburger without waiting for the meat to thaw.

Ingredients

  • 2 frozen raw beef patties
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cooking oil spray

Directions

Step 1: Prepare the patties

Frozen Hamburger Patties On Air Fryer Basket

Spray both sides of the frozen burger patties with oil, then season generously with salt and pepper. Coat the air fryer basket with oil spray, then place patties on the air fryer basket.

Step 3: Enjoy juicy burgers

How Long to Cook Frozen Hamburgers in an Air Fryer

To make delicious frozen burgers in the air fryer, cook at 350° for 8-10 minutes.

You may need to adjust the cook time depending on the size and thickness of your burger. It is best to use a meat thermometer. The internal temperature should be 160°.

What to Serve with Your Hamburgers

Once cooked, serve the patties in lightly toasted hamburger buns with burger toppings like lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles, ketchup and mustard.

Pair your hamburgers with a side of french fries, onion rings, barbecue baked beans or pasta salad.

How to Grow Strawberries https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/how-to-grow-strawberries/ https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/how-to-grow-strawberries/#respond Fri, 17 Jun 2022 20:11:33 +0000 https://www.tasteofhome.com/?p=1781119 Have fresh strawberries? You can use seeds from the fruit to grow strawberry plants. Here's what to do!

Collage Of Tiktok Showing How To Grow Strawberries

Wouldn’t it be great to have strawberries growing in the garden or in a container on the patio? You could pick a few of the ruby red fruits whenever you want a strawberry fix. This is 100% possible. Here’s how to grow strawberries using the seeds from a fresh berry.

Already see something that looks like a wild strawberry plant growing on your lawn? It might be a mock strawberry.

How to Grow Strawberries from Seed

TikTok user @joesgarden outlined an easy way to turn your stash of strawberries into even more delicious fruit. Take a close look at a strawberry and you’ll see tiny seeds on the outside of the fruit. These seeds are the potential strawberry plants waiting to grow for you.

@joesgarden #howto easily grow strawberries at home this summer ❤️😊🌱! #plants #planttok #didyouknow #learnontiktok #eco #diy #seeds #strawberry ♬ Up Beat (Married Life) – Kenyi


When you’re looking for strawberries to replant, buy fruit that’s plump and free from bruises and discoloration.

Slice the strawberries in half and leave them on a paper towel to dry. This allows the tiny seeds to become detached from the fruit and easily scraped away from the berry. They will be super tiny specks on the paper towel, but there’s a lot of growing potential there.

Put the tiny seeds in small pots mixed with compost. I recommend that you moisten the seeds and compost mixture with a spray bottle so you don’t flood the seeds out of their new growing environment with the flow from a watering can.

In a few weeks, you’ll see sprouts of new growth. When the new plants have grown in size and have multiple leaves, separate them. Then move the new plants to larger containers or plant them in the garden. You can even get creative by growing your strawberries in a laundry basket.

Before long, you’ll have fresh fruit for strawberry recipes!

Does This Method Really Work?

Yes, but there are a few things to keep in mind when growing strawberries from store-bought berries.

Organic produce is a good choice, as you can be sure the plants are free from any unwanted chemical sprays. Try to buy strawberries that have been grown locally or purchase fruit that’s labeled as organic at the market.

Organic strawberries are highly perishable, so start this garden project after they’re purchased. Berries that are starting to spoil and are too mushy in texture won’t work as well, since the goal is to try and isolate the tiny seeds to dry out. Make sure you store your strawberries properly to keep them from going bad.

Give your strawberry plants a window of 6 to 8 hours of sunshine a day and see what happens. The strawberry plants you grow from the store-bought strawberries will produce fruits that are smaller in size than the original berries. If you have too many, freeze your strawberries so you can keep eating them all year round.

Neapolitan Oreos Will Drop This Summer—and Each Cookie Has Three Flavors of Creme https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/neapolitan-oreos/ https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/neapolitan-oreos/#respond Fri, 17 Jun 2022 17:48:52 +0000 https://www.tasteofhome.com/?p=1781478 Did somebody say "waffle cone-flavored cookie"?

The post Neapolitan Oreos Will Drop This Summer—and Each Cookie Has Three Flavors of Creme appeared first on Taste of Home.

]]>
Say nostalgia, and I’ll probably say Oreos. I have all kinds of sweet memories associated with this classic cookie—including catching my dad awake in the wee hours with Oreos and a mug of milk in hand!

Oreos is definitely cashing in on this nostalgia. They’ve already brought back Oreo Cakesters and even did a memorable mashup with Ritz and Oreo cookies. But now, they’re dropping something brand-new: Neapolitan Oreos! My childhood heart is so full of joy right now.

Neapolitan Oreos Means Three Flavors in One

It’s icon, a classic, an absolute favorite when it comes to all things ice cream. It’s Neapolitan! Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry layered together for one oh-so-satisfying bite. While some of us might lean more toward one flavor than the others (I’m a strawberry girl myself), it’s impossible not to take a little bit of each. Especially during the hot summer months.

Now our favorite sandwich cookie, Oreo, has officially dropped its new summer flavor, and we’re pumped. This could be the best flavor yet! Let’s start with the waffle cone-flavored cookies on the outside. Um, yes please? The subtle sweetness and crunch of waffle cones are totally tasty and a must-have for all things ice cream.

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by OREO (@oreo)

But then there’s the creme filling. Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry are coming together like never before. You can expect a fluffy, delicious triple-layered creme in the middle of each Oreo. You get all the flavors in every bite! Plus, it’s super pretty to look at. Talk about ridiculously photogenic.

When Can I Get ‘Em?

This is a limited-edition Oreo flavor that will officially hit shelves nationwide in July 2022. Yes, that’s right around the corner! I want to say I’ll have some sort of willpower and not buy every package I see…but I can’t promise.

Either way, I just know this summer will be three times as delicious as the last. Make sure you get yours while supplies last, and don’t forget to eat your Oreos the right way.

How to Make Quick Pickled Red Onions https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/how-to-make-quick-pickled-red-onions/ https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/how-to-make-quick-pickled-red-onions/#respond Fri, 17 Jun 2022 17:20:56 +0000 https://www.tasteofhome.com/?p=1780460 This simple recipe for quick pickled red onions makes a tangy topping for sandwiches or burgers. You can also use the pickled onions on a charcuterie board!

The post How to Make Quick Pickled Red Onions appeared first on Taste of Home.

]]>

The perfect combination of sweet and tangy, quick pickled red onions add a sliver of color, crunch and character to almost any dish.

When it comes to making pickled vegetables at home, the first thing that comes to mind is likely old-fashioned dill pickles, pickled beets or pickled green beans. However, if you’re looking for a different kind of produce to preserve, pickled red onions are almost impossible to resist!

How Do You Use Pickled Red Onions?

Whether folded into scrambled eggs or piled on shrimp tacos, this vibrant and versatile condiment makes an irresistible upgrade to anything it touches. These tangy onions make an excellent addition to tuna salad sandwiches, turkey burgers and classic avocado toast, and are a sweet and savory topper for grilled pork, steak and fish.

Pickled red onions can also be diced into a relish for a charcuterie board, mixed with cream cheese for a delectable dip or stirred into a simple guacamole for extra kick. For more inspiration, check out our collection of red onion recipes.

How to Make Quick Pickled Red Onions

Pickled Red Onions with Thyme leaves

This recipe comes together in minutes, with no fancy canning supplies required.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup white wine or cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • Optional: fresh rosemary, thyme or dill sprigs, whole black peppercorns, small dried chili or garlic clove

Tools

Directions

Step 1: Slice the onions

Slice the onions into rounds using a sharp chef’s knife or a mandoline. You can choose thinner slices for a softer texture or thicker slices for more crunch, depending on your preference. Use your fingers to separate the layers and transfer the onion slices to a large glass jar. Press firmly to pack the onions tightly inside.

Step 2: Prepare the pickling brine

Combine the water, vinegar, sugar, salt and any pickling spices in a large bowl, then whisk together until sugar and salt are completely dissolved.

Step 3: Submerge the onions

Pour the pickling liquid over the onions in the jar until the onions are completely submerged. Seal the jar and let it stand at room temperature for 2 hours before serving.

Step 4: Store in the refrigerator

Once the onions are tender and bright pink, they are ready to enjoy. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Tips for Making Quick Pickled Red Onions

Pickled Red Onions

How long will pickled red onions last?

When sealed properly and stored in the refrigerator, pickled red onions will keep their texture and taste for up to 2 weeks.

Can you use other kinds of onions for this recipe?

While red onions will make the most visually appealing option, this simple pickling method will work with almost any type of onion you have on hand. Try this brine with yellow onions, sweet onions, cipollinis or even shallots.

How can you make pickled red onions your own?

There are just as many ways to customize your pickled red onions as there are ways to use them! Once you know the steps, you can experiment until you find the perfect recipe for you.

  • The type of vinegar you decide to use will play a big role in the final flavor of your pickled red onions. This recipe calls for white wine or apple cider vinegar, but red wine, rice or plain white vinegar will also make a delicious brine.
  • For a fruity twist, you can use equal parts fresh-squeezed orange, lime and lemon juice as a substitute for the vinegar to create a bright and zesty citrus pickling liquid.
  • Test out different textures by slicing your onion into various sizes and shapes. Instead of thin rounds, try cutting them lengthwise into thicker slices or dicing them into hearty chunks. If you’re opting for bigger pieces, you’ll need to let your onions sit in the brine for double the amount of time and add more liquid to coat.
  • Give your pickled onions more depth of flavor by adding herbs and spices like garlic cloves, whole black peppercorns or sprigs of fresh rosemary, dill and thyme.
  • To create a spicier version, slip a few slices of fresh habanero or jalapeno peppers into your vinegar mix.

There’s nothing like the perfect ice cream cone to cool off on a hot summer day. With so many choices at various fast-food restaurants, we decided to sample as many as possible in the Chicago area to figure out which one serves the best fast-food ice cream. Some places offer soft serve, while others sell scoopable ice cream. When possible, we ordered with a cake cone, but sometimes only a dish was available. To even the playing field, a plain vanilla option was purchased at each location, even if other flavors were on the menu.

Here’s a list of all the places we visited:

  • Baskin-Robbins
  • Burger King
  • Chick-fil-A
  • Cold Stone
  • Culver’s
  • Dairy Queen
  • McDonald’s
  • Oberweis
  • Shake Shack

Let’s see who had the best fast-food ice cream!
