30 Bananas a Day!

Hello,

I am getting super excited about creating (making?) a custom produce storage rack or shelving unit.

My boyfriend's brother is a pro wood worker--like intricate wood detail on lovely buildings--so I was thinking of having him help me.

What is your experience with storing starches, 40 pounds of bananas (at least!), and all other produce? Right now I have boxes of the stuff just on the floor of our tiny kitchen...

Thanks, loves--

We are just moving into a new place and I am curious as to how to store fresh produce too.  

My thought would be to have a shelving unit, but with angled shelves that have a lip on the end to prevent contents from sliding off. It'd have easy access, and be open to the air for room tempurature ripening. Possibly even some doors or slatted shutters that could be closed to boost the temp and ethylene concentration to speed up ripening if so desired.

Hmmm, now that I think of it, the angled shelf configuration is essentially the same style as many shoe rack/displays I've seen on Pinterest. It might be worthwhile searching shoe racks on there and tweaking it instead for produce use. Pinterest is such a great source of ideas and inspiration.

I'd love to see pics of what you come up with in the end.

So Spiffy, such a great idea! I hadn't even thought of that, but a large open air shoe rack is pretty much what I had in mind.

If I am successful, I will post pics!
