The first thing I used them for was to cure potatoes before I put them into the potato bin for the winter.
While it is true all the dirt from the potatoes ended up on my floor under the reusable bakery trays, none of the potatoes got pitched.
They all cured perfectly not to mention the produce storage trays stacked on top of one another easily letting me make the most of the small amount of space available in my basement.
I had never had that much success curing potatoes, so naturally I was impressed.
The next thing I tried to do with my reusable bakery racks was to dry black walnuts.
Now I assumed the black walnuts would stain the reusable bakery racks – and they did.
This was ok though.
I knew what had happened and didn’t mind one bit.
I just washed and rinsed them when I was done – and of course before the next use.
Again, my walnuts dried just like they were supposed to, no problems at all.
Storage Of Produce Is An Important Task
Since then I have used these reusable bakery racks for a number of items – pears including the Asian Pears in the photo above, peaches, apples, tomatoes, corn and any other edible item that was large enough not to fall through the holes.
I love using these reusable bakery trays – and I have had a lot less wasted food.
My chickens may not be real happy as their scraps are a lot less, but then again, I am growing the food for us, not them.
