About the Innovators

Apeel

Apeel and Slow Island are true innovators in the food space—focused on reducing food waste globally as well as in their own backyards.

Apeel works with nature to reduce food waste and create abundance for all. Apeel’s plant-derived solution locks in moisture while keeping out oxygen, two of the largest factors in spoilage. The result? Less waste for both you and the planet, creating a more abundant future. Chef Gida from Slow Island focuses on a more localized approach to building a sustainable tomorrow. By sourcing fresh ingredients for her line of syrups from neighboring Hawaiian growers, she’s maximizing the potential for every grower and crop in her community.

Experience

Summer nights deserve the romance of the tropics.

Elevate your evenings when you pair Slow Island’s Mango Citrus Culinary Syrup with Apeel Avocados and Fair-trade Limes to create the ultimate summer night pleaser. Each box comes with everything you need to explore margaritas and guacamole in a fun, new and delicious way. As with all Apeel protected products, your avocados and limes will stay fresh 2x longer, giving you even more time to enjoy this wonderfully unique experience, handcrafted by Chef Gida herself.

Tasting Notes

Fresh avocados have a subtle, earthy and yet nutty flavor. They are often described as buttery.

Limes have more of an acidic, tart taste, nicely balancing the flavor of the avocado when combined.

Slow Island’s Mango Citrus Culinary Syrup enhances the flavor of any drink or recipe by merging fresh, sweet Hawaiian mangos with the tropical flavor of Hawaiian citrus.

About The Harvest

Apeel works with nature to reduce food waste and create abundance for all, by using materials that exist in the peels, seeds and pulp of all fruits and vegetables to create a protective extra peel that seals moisture in and keeps oxygen out. This makes produce stay fresh, nutritious and delicious for longer—which means less food going to waste throughout the supply chain—from farm, to store, to your home. This is an issue that the team at Apeel knew they had to solve. Less waste at home, means less waste for the planet and a more abundant future for us all.

Limes

Your limes can be stored on the counter at room temperature for a few days, however this method speeds up the ripening. We recommend storing them loose in the refrigerator crisper drawer to keep them fresh. 

Avocados

Your Apeel avocados will last 2 times longer than a typical store bought avocado.

Store your unripe avocados on the counter at room temperature until they are soft to the touch. Once they are soft, store them in the fridge for up to 1 week. Yes, avocados all week!

Storing ripe avocados in the fridge keeps them fresh and ready for use.

To freeze, select slightly firm, ripe avocados. Slice into half and remove the pit. Peel the skin away and flash freeze slices on a cookie sheet in the freezer for up to an hour. Remove and place in a freezer-safe bag for long term storage.
