Host Richard Hentschel talks with Drusilla Banks Food and Nutrition Educator about sending and receiving food gift baskets. Not everything in the basket should be stored the same, fruit is different than nuts and both are very different that a food gift that is shipped frozen. Dru suggests alerting the recipient that a gift basket is being sent and that it needs immediate care. Fruit baskets should be opened and fruits sorted out and each type fruit should be stored in the best conditions for each fruit.
