Fruits and Humidity
One way to make fruits last longer even without a refrigerator is to leave them close to moisture. Fill a pot of water and cover with a lid that has several holes, place the fruit on top of that lid.
Over time the water will begin to evaporate and so your fruit will moisten. It is important to put more water in the pot every day. Do not forget the fact that chili, eggplant, tomato, cucumber and chuchu are also fruits.
One of the main questions is how to keep cold food without the refrigerator, know that they will require even greater care. To ensure that colds last longer even without the refrigerator it is important to store them with plenty of water.
Place containers with food in the sink with cold water. But know that miracles do not exist with food and colds last less than refrigeration, consume in less than 24 hours. Afterwards they will be spoiled, among the main cold cuts that can be preserved like this are milk, cheese and yoghurts.
Think of logic, when vegetables are planted stand upright, so when you store them horizontally it eases them to spoil. So let carrots, onions and others positioned vertically while keeping them fresh. You can fill a pot of sand and put the vegetables standing inside it, fix them right there. For herbs and lettuce to last longer the tip is to place them inside a vase with water.
How to Make a Natural Refrigerator Step by Step
The first thing to do is to separate two pots that are made of clay and that are of different sizes, it is good that the variation of size between them is of 1 to 3 cm. The pots can not have holes in their sides or underneath.
The larger vessel should be filled with about 2.5 cm of sand. The vessel that is smaller should be placed inside this vessel, the gap that will form between them should be filled with a little more sand.
It will be necessary to throw water on the sand so that it is soaked. Then cover the vases with a towel and place these vases in the shade. The process of evaporating the water will cause the smaller vessel to be refrigerated.
After doing this step by step you can store your food as cheeses, yogurts and the like in this true natural refrigerator. Keep an eye out to see if the sand is dry.
