Last, but certainly not least in our saver family is the Garlic Saver.
With this handy little garlic saver you can help those heads of garlic you have stashed in your kitchen drawer last upto 45 days longer!
Who wouldn’t want a gadget that saves you from having those old bulbs of garlic that you have to cut out the stem before using because they have already started sprouting? Even for me… we eat a lot of garlic, but sometimes between eating out and trying new recipes the darn things start getting excited and sprout just too early. In fact, I think I’m going to go and grab one now so I can take it home to my hubby. No I don’t have one of everything in the store and yes, writing about some of the products makes me realize how dense I am in not using some of them myself!
If your garlic has sprouted, it is still usable although it has lost some of its flavor and health benefits.
The smell of garlic can be removed by running your hands under cold water while rubbing a stainless steel object which we happen to sell.
Win a FREE Garlic Saver!
The first person who can discover the model number of the odor remover on our online site www.kitchenboutique.ca and comments about it here on our blog, will win!

And yet, another addition to our saver family… the Pepper Saver!
Perfect for saving all of your loose pepper parts, storing them for longer in the fridge and for remembering that they are there in the first place!
Bell peppers are a fantastic source of vitamin C. Although it is commonly thought that citrus fruits are the best source of vitamin C, peppers have them beat. Green peppers have double the amount of vitamin C by weight than citrus fruits… and red bell peppers have three times as much vitamin C as the green varieties and are a good source of beta carotene. So even though red peppers cost more… your health may be worth it!
Win a FREE pepper saver of your choice!

Too bad that time ran out on the give-a-way! If you had guessed that our next saver was an onion saver… you would have won a lemon/lime saver!
These fantastic little onion savers are perfect for prolonging the life of your onion, (if only I could have done that with my 21 year old body!) or for storing a half, or a quarter piece of onion and not forgetting about it.
Jesse loves these the most because the odors don’t leak into your fridge at home or your cooler when you are camping!

I have finally got these fantastic lemon/lime savers on our online store so I thought I’d tell you about them on our blog too!
They are fantastic for keeping your lemons/limes from going off or for storing cut wedges where a. you’ll remember they are there and b. they won’t drip all over the rest of the stuff in your fridge.
We have more savers coming… can you guess which ones are next? I will send a FREE lemon or lime saver to the first five people who comment. Cbreeze
