Genius Hacks To Make Your Food Last Longer
Watermelon + ash, net, clay, moss, or straw
Watermelons are best stored in a cellar at a temperature of about 35°F (2°C). They will keep there for a very long time. Wrap them in a cloth, and hang them in a net or put them on a shelf, wrapped additionally in straw. You can also cover them with clay or wax. Other options are to store them in ashes (in a barrel) or in dry moss. Watermelons last longer in dark cool corners, on a soft cushion, and turned over often.
